Full bodied with gentle acidity and low bitterness. Notes of forest woods and dark cocoa beans. 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.

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 delicate, complex and delicious because it is made just the way nature intended.
