Kopi Luwak is known among connoisseurs as the most expensive coffee in the world. This almost legendary coffee earns that title thanks to its truly unique origins, which most famously involve being partially digested by civet cats (luwaks). However, many discerning coffee drinkers are disappointed when they taste Kopi Luwak – the result of inferior and even fake products flooding the market. There are many stories in the press around unethical coffee producers who keep civets in cages for mass-produced coffee. This is not only cruel; it also diminishes the quality of the coffee due to the stress the animal suffers. Read more

Kopi Luwak is known among connoisseurs as the most expensive coffee in the world. This almost legendary coffee earns that title thanks to its truly unique origins, which most famously involve being partially digested by civet cats (luwaks). However, many discerning coffee drinkers are disappointed when they taste Kopi Luwak – the result of inferior and even fake products flooding the market. There are many stories in the press around unethical coffee producers who keep civets in cages for mass-produced coffee. This is not only cruel; it also diminishes the quality of the coffee due to the stress the animal suffers.

However, Difference Coffee's Wild Kopi Luwak is 100% ethically and sustainably sourced: it is allowed to be named “wild“ because the droppings comes from civets that roam free on the Gayo Estate, the only certified wild luwak estate in Indonesia, and eat the choicest coffee cherries. Due to the civets’ excellent health and diet, the beans passing through their systems result in exceptional flavour. We only buy specialty grade luwak coffee that scores 85 points as a very minimum and, therefore, supply is very limited.

We promise an unrivalled cup which meets the highest of standards set by the Specialty Coffee Association. Wild Kopi Luwak is a truly outstanding coffee that is not delicate, complex and delicious because it is made just the way nature intended.

The White Truffle of Coffee

“Every time I taste Kopi Luwak, for me, it is a unique emotion because it is a small way to constantly return to Asia while living in Italy. I love this coffee for its notes of cedar and chocolate which makes it unique in the world. It’s coffee for people like me who are passionate about nature.”

This coffee is often described as delicate yet full-bodied, reminiscent of dark cocoa and caramel, with hints of its tropical forest roots.

EVERY COFFEE TELLS A STORY

At Gayo Estate in Indonesia, the exclusive source of Difference Coffee’s Wild Kopi Luwak, wild civet cats roam freely through the coffee plantation. They feast without interference, naturally selecting the ripest, plumpest coffee berries to eat as part of a varied natural diet. So begins a unique process by which the coffee berries become de-pulped, fermented and transformed by enzymes into coffee beans of unrivalled quality.

The next stages of Kopi Luwak’s progression from plant to cat to cup are handled by Gayo Estate’s experts. They gather the civet droppings and rigorously wash and sort the Wild Kopi Luwak beans for quality, all according to the strict standards laid out by the Specialty Coffee Association. Only then are these rare coffee beans ready for roasting, enjoying and celebrating as one of the most astonishing cups of coffee you’ll ever taste.
