    Dont worry, this time around it doesn't even involve the Civets! https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/camilledelebecque/cultured-coffee-reinventing-coffee?ref=nav_search Actually quite interesting, and would be nice to try. Still expensive at $45/300g, but cheaper than Kopi Luwak and much...

    As this review on Spam link removed (Rhys) suggests, can Kopi Luwak be ethical and responsibly sourced or should people steer clear altogether?

    Was on Hampstead Heath yesterday and passed a mobile coffee stand with The Economist plastered all over it. They were trying to bolster subscriptions by giving away free coffee in return for your particulars. Interested, I asked what was in their grinder. The guy beamed and said "Kopi Luwak -...

    Interesting article from Temple Coffee Rasters http://dailycoffeenews.com/2015/01/19/kopi-luwak-vs-geisha-at-temple-coffees-most-controversial-cupping/ Whilst we've done the politics of it to death and I'd hate to reopen that can of worms again, would be good to have something to point out to...

    I read the article in the news section of the forum, about Kopi Luwak. Like most people i suspect, my only knowledge of this coffee is from The Bucket List film. I have now read a few articles and watched the BBC documentary, and am moved by the plight of these civet cats. As a result, i have...

    Hi everyone, I'm aware this goes against the standard internet etiquette rule of signing up for a forum and then asking for advice without offering something in return, but I'm not sure how else to proceed! We were in Bali last year and tried the cat poo coffee (kopi luwak). I've been making a...

    Hello everyone First of all, apologise for being so direct with this being my second thread only. I have been working directly on and off with local wild "kopi luwak" farmers in Indonesia for my domestic use and for a bit of profit amongst friends. I am now looking to sell to local non chain...

    A recent article discusses the next coffee rave. At least they have some cred with a photo of an Orphan Espresso Lido?? http://www.cnngo.com/bangkok/drink/why-worlds-most-expensive-coffee-comes-elephants-butt-426056

  12. Coffee Beans
    I'm very pleased to announce that http://www.coffeebeanshopltd.co.uk have responded to my letter/PM to them regarding Kopi Luwak. To get straight to the point, they seem to have now researched the product more and have concluded that they will no longer be selling Kopi Luwak. Owner Dave said...

    Anyone tried Kopi Luwak? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kopi_Luwak It's supposed to be amazing. Before I fork out and try some I was hoping to hear from anyone that has tried it...

    I'm very keen to know what's going on at the NBC after reading tweets by David Walsh of Marco that said: "The Nordic Barista Cup says yes to Kopi Luwak" and "Nespresso and Kopi Luwak in one day. The Sumatran coffees are also free flowing. This, my friends, is the Nordic Barista Cup." I had...

    Has anyone tried the expensive kopi luwak? I have just purchased a tiny bag to try as I have been reading about it. As weird as it sounds - having been through a civets digestive system - i'm still keen to try. I'll let you know what it's like!!!!!
  18. Coffee Beans
    Has anyone tried Kopi Luwak (Civet) or Kopi Muncak (Deer) beans yet? Wiki definition I have heard mixed reviews of both and am yet to try them myself. I cannot see how passing them through the digestive system of a mammal can have a positive effect, as there is still a protective layer around...
