    Comments about Kopi Luwak Coffee:

    Had heard of this coffee before, and tried it in Indonesia on a farm, loved it, bought some and it is great story and surprise to friends, but they all loved it after tasting it before knowing the story. However, those who find it disgusting because it came through an animal, I ask you "do you eat eggs" ? :-)

      Comments about Kopi Luwak Coffee:

      Oh, this is silly. This coffee is about status. It's a novelty. It's a fine coffee, quite good. I tried it because a friend gifted me with a 50g bag of the stuff. Nice aroma, rolls smoothly under the palate, but not very complex and not even that memorable.

      If you buy this, know that you are paying for the right to say that you've spent a ludicrous amount of money on something that is merely quite good. If you live near a roaster, it is very likely that they will have a superior coffee available at 1/10th the price. It's at least worth trying once, if only to appreciate your local roaster for producing something that is of higher quality than a far more expensive product.

          Comments about Kopi Luwak Coffee:

          Got home last night with my Kopi Luwak. I've had coffee thru out the US and Europe, but Kopi Luwak has turned out to be the BEST that I've had anywhere. It has no bitter aftertaste, no acid taste. It is very smooth with a wonderful body flavor. I have found nirvana.

            Comments about Kopi Luwak Coffee:

            The only thing this has going for it is the story of its origin. If you cant tell people where it came from whats the point. On a normal coffee grading scale it is lacking in every area. ie. complexity, flavor, body, finish, brightness, aroma. So if you want to shock a few people go ahead otherwise your money is better spent on a Kenya AA or a Jamacian Blue Mountain

            I have shared this rare and unique beverage with many of my friends and I must say it was great. Though the taste is mellow and soft, what I enjoyed most was the story we were able to share about its origins. That alone is worth the price in my opinion.

              Comments about Kopi Luwak Coffee:

              I had this coffee tonight right after dinner; it's better described as mild rather than bold (I used 3 medium scoops to brew 4 cupps), with a very pleasing aroma and a distinct taste which I appreciated even more after my third and fourth sips. There is no bitter or acid after-taste with this variety, and it is quite easy on the stomach. If you enjoy coffee, give it a try, you won't be disappointed. A distinguished connoisseur who is familiar with my love of coffee sent this to me as a gift to try. I'm glad he did!

                  Comments about Kopi Luwak Coffee:

                  Unquestionably, the coffee of the 1%. Maybe even the coffee of the 0.1%, this coffee produces uniquely satisfying delusions of grandeur. The very thought that native people have hand-picked each coffee bean out of wild civet droppings, well, your guests can taste it just thinking about it! This level of "artisanship"––the stuff of medieval or Mayan legend, the stuff of kings, is just so hard to find these days in America. Maybe we should import some of these Thai tribal people. Think of the possibilities.

                  I love coffee--Stumptown, Starbuck's. Ristretto, etc. This is far better than anything else. However, do not read how the coffee is made if you want to continue to enjoy the coffee--fermenting process, indeed.
