Everything you want to know
Perhaps the most extraordinary, discussed and expensive coffee in the world. The beans are ingested and evacuated by the Luwak, small rodents of the Indonesian forests, whose gastric enzymes are able to give the coffee an extraordinary, chocolaty aroma and a body without equal.
We are pleased to declare that the Kopi Luwak here on Caffèlab comes from plantations where this the famous animal, lives free and in the wilderness (See certification in the pictures).
For this evaluation, the coffee was tasted and extracted in espresso at 92°C, with an extraction of 25 ml in 23 seconds. The degassing of the coffee took 60 hours (two and a half days). The crema is full-bodied, tending to dark but not greyish as in the case of some Robusta coffees. The aroma has a marked cocoa and toast sensation which is typical of these coffees. The taste of the coffee is decidedly full-bodied and a marked sweetness is perceived on the tip of the tongue. The aroma and acidity are well balanced.
