Kopi Luwak… A MUST TRY ONCE IN A LIFETIME COFFEE with 2 mugs and an information leaflet.
For those of you that have not seen "The Bucket List", or need a refresher, the story revolves around two terminally ill men (Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman) that create a list of things to do before they die.
The men meet in a hospital room where they are roommates. Jack Nicholson's character drinks a fancy coffee called Kopi Luwak. Morgan Freeman gives him a hard time about drinking the fancy Kopi Luwak coffee, and says he prefers normal coffee. As the men are creating their bucket list, Morgan Freeman's character adds "Laugh until I cry" as an entry…. This is something to try… something that you can say you have done!
Kopi luwak or civet coffee, is the world's most expensive and low-production varieties of coffee. It is made from the beans of coffee berries which have been eaten by the Asian Palm Civet (Paradoxurus hermaphroditus) and other related civets, then passed through its digestive tract. A civet eats the berries for their fleshy pulp. In the digestive tract, the civets' proteolytic enzymes seep into the beans, making shorter peptides and more free amino acids. Passing through a civet's intestines the beans are then defecated, keeping their shape. After gathering, thorough washing, sun drying, light roasting and brewing, these beans yield an aromatic coffee with much less bitterness. This coffee bean is widely noted as the most expensive coffee in the world with prices reaching £800 per kg in Harrods this afternoon.
We would urge you to think long and hard as buying this coffee from another source will encourage this practice of battery farming.
