Kopi Luwak

Kopi Luwak is the most expensive coffee in the world, and the reason for that is a small carnivore called a palm civet or Luwak that is native to the wild jungles of the islands of Sumatra and Bali. Looking like a little mongoose or a wild cat, this creature has an acute sense of smell and is keen on coffee beans. Every night, the little Luwak finds its way onto coffee plantations and eats all the most ripe and rich coffee beans! Once the beans are thoroughly fermented and all the “bitterness” is removed by the digestive tract of the palm civet, the beans are excreted for the animal’s organism and are left on the ground for the Balinese farmers. The consequently processed beans are named Kopi Luwak after the little animal who aids in the preparation process.

You will have an opportunity to enjoy a cup of the famous Kopi Luwak while you are on Bali, and don’t forget to get some for your family and friends!
