Authentic "Kopi Luwak"


Its a rainy day today, had a good night sleep. Now its 10.00am in the morning, I've finish all the necessary thing for preparation for next semester's class... cant wait to see my new student.. especially my basic cookery class... hehehe.

Today my post is about the most expensive coffee in the world, wow... how in the world did i get my hands on the most expensive coffee in the world? Have you guys heard about "Kopi Luwak". These authentic coffee can be found in south east Asia only due to the "luwak cat" can be found there only. I got my hand on the authentic coffee because my student bought it for me... I told her that I'm a coffee lover, so she bought 200gm for me. I ask her how much, but she never told me the price... but the tag says its expensive... hehehe

The coffee comes in a fancy goody bag like, very attractively presented, and a certificate saying the product is actually 100% Authentic, I guest the producer of the product are very serious about controlling the quality.
Did you guys know the process of kopi luwak... how it came about?

The Luwak (Paradoxusurus hermaphroditus) denizen of the coffee (kopi) plantations of Java, Sumatra and Sulawesi, eats only the ripest coffee cherries. The Luwak un able to digest the coffee beans, the Luwak graciously deposits them on the jungle floor where they are eagerly collected by locals. the stomach acid and enzymatic action involved in this unique fermentation process produce the beans for the world's rarest coffee beverage.

The taste of the coffee is a bit fruity the texture is not a s thick as coffee from the machine, but the aroma, its unexplainable, the aroma of coffee luwak have capture my heart... that's why I'm a coffee lover...
