Did you know that some of the best (or at least most expensive) coffee in the world comes from this little critter? This little guy (or possibly gal) is an Asian Palm Civet, which is also often called a toddy cat. Typically, they weigh anywhere between 4 and 11 pounds and are omnivores by nature.
Someone (Indonesian farmers), somehow – for whatever reason – discovered that when the toddy cat eats coffee berries, digests them, and then excretes them, that the coffee produced from these berries is simply amazing.
During the digestive process, enzymes trickles into the coffee bean providing an enhanced flavor as well as aroma. The result is a less bitter tasting coffee that many have come to love.
In fact, this coffee is so famous, that it has its own name – Kopi Luwak. Luwak is the Indonesian name for Asian Palm Civets cialis vente en france.
On the one-year birthday of the opening of the café component of Seeds Coffee, we will be selling a limited quantity of Kopi Luwak!
All proceeds from Kopi Luwak coffee sales will go toward purchasing teapots for the café from Eugene Sailor Studios, which is a Birmingham-based business that creates handmade pottery and woodworking. Joel Shaw, the owner of Eugene Sailor Studios, will be using the proceeds from the Seeds teapot purchase to aide in his efforts to adopt a child from Ethopia.
Head to Seeds (174 Oxmoor Road) on Monday, April 14 to enjoy a cup of Kopi Luwak for $5 per cup (while supplies last).
