Kopi Luwak or Luwak coffee originated from Bali. According to Wikipedia, kopi luwak or civet coffee, refers to the beans of coffee berries once they have been eaten and excreted by the Asian palm civet. Asian palm civet look like cats. While we were in Bali, we had the opportunity to visit a luwak coffee farm. We were informed by the guides there that the luwak is allowed to roam around the farm to hunt for the ripe coffee beans. After excreted the beans, the beans will be cleaned, cooked and dried several times before it is then blend into powders.
We were informed by the guide that they also provide other types of coffee such as ginger coffee, honey coffee and etc for free. However, they charge for each cup of luwak coffee. I’m sorry, I have forgotten how much it cost.
If you are going to Bali, I would not recommend you to try this. Even though the coffees are given for free, it is not worth it. The coffee powder doesn’t dissolve in hot water, so it tastes really odd towards the end. I didn’t like it at all as it was sandy towards the end. But I’m glad I’ve tried it. But no more.
