    Kopi Luwak

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    As you may have read we are showcasing some of this coffee. see here: http://coffeesnobs.com.au/YaBB.pl?num=1163933441

    I have had a few pms from out of staters asking about it. I was not planning on selling any beans but because of the response I will put a little bit up for sale.

    First in first serve, no rainchecks. I am roasting this for espresso on the 18th February, I have a limited (1Kg to spare which I may squeeze out to 2 Kg) amount and will not be selling greens as I need to make up a minimum batch size for the Diedrich.

    Cost is $80 per 100gm $160 per 200gm, until it is all gone. Postage included.

    All takers must have paid and ordered by 17th Feb and they will be shipped via Au Post express the day of roasting.

    If you are interested please email me to organise well in advance as not to miss out.

    Re: Kopi Luwak Roasted and Greens

    I have just talked to my supplier again and he is bringing some more Luwak in this month. Our thoughts are to offer some greens to the CS community. This is genuine un-blended Luwak from the Aceh region of Northern Sumatra. It is certified by the Aceh Coffee Board and is RSPCA approved. We are in the process of getting some cool packaging put together but it may come at a later date. Our initial thoughts are for 250gm of greens, but I would appreciate any feedback on this quantity. At this point we are estimating $125 for 250grams of greens, but before we are committing to any packaging we want to make sure this is a good size. Please let me know 1) if you are interested and 2) what size you would be interested in.

    Costliest Coffee - Kopi Luwak?

    Hi all coffee nerds tell me which is the costliest coffee available?? [smiley=undecided.gif]

    I heard it is Kopi Luwak coffee which comes from the Indonesian island of Sumatra, an area well-known for its excellent coffee. Paradoxurus is the little creature which eats red, ripe coffee cherry and ferments it in its tummy and after the seed exits from there it is cleaned roasted and the result is most exotic coffee rich, heavy flavored .

    Any one tasted this coffee? How is it? How much does it really cost?? [smiley=shocked.gif]

    Nerds? >:( >:( >:(

    I think you need to choose your words more carefully.

    Do a google search for your answer.
    Its been discussed too many times here already.

    Stop with the silly questions.

    Re: Kopi Luwak

    I think i would have to be paid to drink coffee that was shat out by a small rodent. In my opinion it is all hype and a novelty and if marketed well (which it is) people will believe it. Just my opinion.

    cheers

    Re: Kopi Luwak

    Although I usually read all of the new posts each day, I follow 2mcms advice and keep quiet unless I have something useful to say, which is rarely. However, in this case I completely endorse Greg 41 s comment. The idea of charging a super premium price for a coffee bean which has negotiated its way completely through the alimentary canal of a small jungle rodent seems to me to be a con worthy of some sort of Sales and Marketing Nobel Prize. The further idea of then consuming this product as a food suggests an "only in America" tagline but obviously from this thread, the thought has spread further afield.

    Ah well, chacun a son gout!! (and I do mean that literally)

    I think part of the price is the scarcity of the product.

    In which case, the coffee from Thundergods Estate will command very hefty prices indeed when it finally arrives on the market a few years from now, because I only have two plants.

    That doesnt mean youre going to process your beans in the same way as the civet does, I hope! ;D

    Ive answered that question before...no!

    Ill be relying on the exclusivity of the product.

    The Jamaican Blue Mountain in tonights Bean Bay gives me an idea of pricing.

    Was that just to get passed 2000 posts? ;D ;D ;D

    I think the price of Kopi Luwak is simply supply and demand.
    Would I pay for it if I could get a small sample that was genuine? You bet!
    It would be out of curiosity and say yep tried it and it tasted like....?

    Guess that I am part of the problem.

    Well, call it re-confirming. This is something I would definitely need to know in advance rather than hindsight! :P

    Given the plantation size, Im sure the first and subsequent crops will be small enough to ensure a low quantity. Im sure that you are under no illusions that anything other than the the quality is going to determine the exclusivity of TG Estate before we start considering prices in the vicinity of the JBM stratosphere.
