The coffee berry is one of the favorite food for Luwaks. The Luwak will only eat coffee berries that has been ripe perfectly. Because of its weak digestion, coffee beans are not crushed, so it can come out with the civet droppings.
Our Kopi Luwak was collected from Wild Luwak which live free in the forest. Our Kopi Luwak came from more than 21 villages in Takengon, Aceh. Our farmers collected all the coffee beans in the morning. They are going to forest to collecting Luwak feces.
Supplier Local Responsibilities
Deep in the Sumatran jungle lies the Gibbon Ridge Estate – a 200 hectares stretch of land in the centre of an idyllic coffee growing region. Next door is an additional 100 hectares of smaller, locally grown plantations of developing Arabica coffee trees.
These farms are surrounded by virgin rainforest teeming with wildlife such as orangutans, monkeys, tigers, cobras, and of course civet cats. All farms are carefully managed in the most eco-friendly ways by our supplier. We consider this just another part of our responsibility to preserve the delicate natural balance of the local eco system.
Why should you support this project?
I have more than twenty years experience as a chef and worked in different countries in the last fifteen years. I recognized many different cultures and learned how important it is to prepare meals and drinks source quality products. Indonesia has a very good production of food and drinks on the basis of Bio. By supporting local production follows this project preservation of traditional agriculture. Support comes directly selling products for ensuring maximum possible sales prices.
I believe that successful completion of the project will provide better business conditions in the region and allows natural civet cat breeding in the wild.
