The Secret of Kopi Luwak
From the most unexpected origins, comes the world’s most exotic and expensive coffee. Produced primarily in Indonesia, the rare Kopi Luwak coffee comes from the droppings of the palm civet, a wild cat-like animal that feasts on only the tastiest coffee tree berries. After the berries are digested, the remaining coffee beans are collected and purified before being roasted to perfection.
During the mid-19th century in Dutch Indonesia, coffee was produced for European export only and not available to locals.
Innovative Indonesians soon discovered a creative way around the restriction and began to produce coffee from the droppings of the palm civet. The resulting coffee became a favorite among the Dutch farmers. And the rest is history!
Javatino founder and CEO, José Estorino, has traveled to a small village in East Java, Indonesia in his quest to provide the best quality Kopi Luwak for his customers. “Having personally met these dedicated farmers, I can vouch for the quality of each cup of our Kopi Luwak coffee,” he says. “Just one taste of the smooth and delicious flavors will put to rest any doubts about this unique production process.”
