Aficionados of the perfectly prepared cup of freshly-brewed coffee can only really consider themselves in the major leagues of coffee connoisseurs after they have savored the unique flavor of Luwak Coffee - an Indonesian specialty coffee that has a annual total production of less than 500 kilograms and can sell for as much as US$1,000 per kilogram.

Now marketed world-wide by Bali-based Animal Coffee, this highly prized coffee, once only known to a very limited circle of coffee gourmets, is now available to a wider audience via the Internet.

Kopi Luwak?

The secret to this unique coffee is in its harvesting or, should we say, how it's harvested. All the coffee beans used in the final product have first passed through the digestive tract of the Asian Palm Civet - Paradoxus hermaphroditus – a small cat-like animal that lives in on many Indonesian islands. Nocturnal by nature, these cats sustain themselves on fruits with their favorite meal the red, ripe beans of plantation coffee. Selective and finicky, the Civets choose only the choices beans. Once ingested, natural proteins responsible for coffee’s natural bitterness are leached out by the animals stomach juices before re-emerging at the other end of the creature’s alimentary tract.

Motivated by the rarity and resulting high market rice of Kopi Luwak, rural villager search jungles and civet habitats surrounding coffee growing areas, hand collecting the eliminated coffee beans from the jungle floor. Only after a meticulous washing, drying and roasting process do these beans qualify as Kopi Luwak and make their way to the tables of the world's most discerning coffee drinkers.

And for those who think Kopi Luwak must represent the last-word in exotic coffee experiences, we've just heard that Animal Coffee will soon launch another product line - Bat Coffee.

Kopi Luwak now available in attractive gift boxes and shipped world-wide from the Animal Coffee Web Site containing more "inside" information than many might ever want to know on the unique production process of the world's rarest coffee.

Just when you were trying to eliminate coffee, a cat manages to beat you to it!
