    Kopi Luwak

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    I understand its unique process and I sympathize with the workers who have to harvest the beans but what I dont understand is "WHY DOES IT COST SO MUCH!". Anyway, even if its only for novelty sake it would be worth the try. Any chance Andy of seeing some kopi luwak on CS?
    Cheers, David

    "WHY DOES IT COST SO MUCH!".
    Its a matter of supply and demand.
    When supply is low the price goes up.

    You may want to put your name down now for some Thundergods Estate coffee.
    My two trees are only 3 years old so the first crop may be another couple of years away yet.
    Due to the extermely limited supply the price will be set at considerably more than kopi luwak.

    No.

    Not until AQIS allow it into the country green, and I cannot see that happening after my previous discussions with them.

    I can only assume that those that have it in Australia either bought it in roasted or didnt tell the whole truth when they imported it.
