Historic Profile: Luwak is the Indonesian name for the Civet Cat. Civets spend their nights rampaging through the local coffee plantations. They inspect each berry meticulously and they only choose to eat the berries that are perfectly ripened, with just the right amount of water content and acidity in the parchment.

This ability to differentiate perfect from average is partially the reason Kopi Luwak is so prized above coffee that is handpicked by farm workers. The other reason is the unique processing those berries go through - once the Luwak has ingested the ripe berries, a "100% Natural" process begins.

The intestinal enzymes and juices of the Luwak remove any bitterness from the bean � leaving an almost perfectly processed natural coffee bean. Every bean of Kopi Luwak collected on our estate is from wild jungle civet cats.
