The rare and exotic Kopi Luwak (often translated as civet coffee) is renowned all around the world for its incredibly delicious, subtle, lingering flavor and exceptional smoothness.
Kopi Luwak, or Civet Coffee, is "processed" by the Indonesian Civet, who populates the coffee-growing areas and comes out nightly to feast on only the ripest of the coffee cherries. The beans do not digest and are collected daily by farmers, who thoroughly sanitize the beans, and then dry them in the sun. Then the beans are roasted and vacuum packed for shipping.
Genuine Kopi Luwak coffee beans release hidden flavor compounds from the beans that are never accessed by regular roasting and brewing. These wonderful, locked-away flavors are released because of the natural enzymes of the civet.
Although the coffee is expensive per pound, a cup of home-brewed civet coffee actually costs less than an average cup of brewed coffee bought at a café like Starbucks. Our direct personal relationship with the producers allow us to offer one of the world's greatest culinary treasures at an exceptional value! We are the only website in the world, that we can verify, selling multiple bean species of Kopi Luwak from several different producers.
As with all our products, we stand behind our Kopi Luwak and absolutely guarantee its quality and authenticity. We have been dealing in Southeast Asian coffee for years and we take great pride in our spotless reputation. We do not sell any diluted kopi luwak, or regular coffee mixed with kopi luwak. All our Kopi Luwak is guaranteed 100% genuine and delicious civet coffee. We ship all civet coffee with suggested brewing instructions and information about the source.
Brewing Civet Coffee: Kopi Luwak can be prepared in any regular coffee machine, or in a Vietnamese-style Phin filter, which brews a single cup of intense coffee at a time (more about Phins here). We include guidelines on using your home coffeemaker to brew delicious Kopi Luwak, as well as a free Phin filter with instructions, so you can try that method, too. In essence, civet coffee can be brewed like an ordinary coffee - but the result is extraordinary!

Bantai Kopi Luwak Gift Pouch
The shade-grown Robusta beans give an incredibly deep and rich cup, and our new easy-to-give gift package is an affordable way to delight even the most discerning coffee gourmet.

This environmentally and ethically sound coffee comes from the Julia Campbell Agro-Forest Memorial Park in the Philippines. The park shelters the rare Philippines civet and is also home to the native people who live in communion with the civets and their forest. The Robusta trees grow in shade at an unusually high altitude, a unique growing method for Robusta that produces extremely smooth and luxurious coffee with hints of almond, spice and fruit.
Each 4 oz and 8 oz bag of Bantai Civet Coffee comes packed inside a gift box with a laminated information sheet describing the coffee and its origins. Also, although the coffee is delicious brewed in a regular coffee machine, we also include a free Vietnamese-style Phin filter for an ultimate gourmet experience.
Bantai Civet Coffee and French Press Gift Set
This is a perfect combination: a "personal size" French Press (12 oz) and 4 ounces of Bantai Civet Coffee in a handmade canvas bag. Bantai kopi luwak (civet coffee) is harvested from organic high-altitude shade grown Robusta trees, in a national preserve where the civets roam free. Most are "rescues" from farm areas where the growers would otherwise hunt them. Purchase of Bantai coffee supports the nature preserve, the endangered civets, and the livelihoods of the indigenous peoples who live and work there.
The Bantai Civet Coffee is a generous 4 ounces of the world's rarest coffee paired with a glass French press with stainless steel housing. With a coffee as subtle and special as this, you want to be sure to brew it right. This is easy to do with a French Press. The French press is one of the most delicious and convenient methods of making coffee and we recommend it to everyone.
Truly anybody who loves coffee would love this set. Send one to everybody you know, or.... Maybe this is the gift that is just too good to give to anybody else. Buy it for yourself!
Great combination price includes 4 ounces Bantai Civet Coffee (in an attractive canvas gift bag, style may vary with availability) and a 12 ounce French Press, packed in a glossy black gift box with instructions and brewing tips for optimizing your enjoyment of the world's best and rarest coffee.
On our Sumatran civet farm, located in the Lampung province, civets dine on a fine strain of Arabica Typica, producing a bright and light-bodied brew, absolutely free of any bitterness, with a truly incredible and persistent aftertaste.
