Region: Indonesia - East Java - Kayumas Estate Plantation
Flavour: An exceptionally smooth sweet coffee with a rich heavy body and no bitter aftertaste. One master roaster has described the flavour as 'fermented plum and dark chocolate with hints of caramel and hazelnuts'.
In the early 19th century the Dutch established coffee plantations in Java and Sumatra, but prohibited the native farmers from collecting the prized beans for their own use. But the farmers soon realised that the Luwaks consumed the coffee berries and left the coffee beans undigested in their droppings. They then collected, cleaned, roasted and ground the coffee beans so that they too could enjoy this precious beverage.
Wild Kopi Luwak or Civet Cat Coffee is often referred to as the world's best coffee
"Kopi" is the Indonesian word for coffee and "Luwak" is the local name for the civet like cat.

I saw this coffee in the film The Bucket List and had to give it a go. It's certainly unusual with a distinctive taste and definitely a treat. Will definitely be buying this coffee for gifts also.
Thank you again for your quick delivery.
I bought this as a present so haven't tasted it yet! The price was very competitive compared to other stores and the delivery was fast. The sales team were also speedy in responding to a query I had.
I haven't used you before so wanted to give you a go, and all I can say is fantastic coffee and great service. More than satisfied and will definitely be using The Love Of Coffee again.
Hi to all,
I would like to thank Sheldon for his help. I ordered some Kopi Luwak coffee beans the week before Christmas. I was in dire straits after a company I had ordered from in the U.S had gone bust!
He was extremely helpful & sent them to me in Ireland by express post & I received them in time for Christmas. So grateful as they were a gift.
I recently purchased Kopi Luwak as a gift for my Father, he had been wanting to try it for a long time and was so excited when he opened it. You could smell the coffee through the wrapping paper and when he tried it, he loved it.
I will definitely be recommending this coffee to others and recommend they purchase from your website as the delivery and service was brilliant.
I find, in life, you generally get what you pay for - and this is no exception. It won't replace my day-to-day coffee, but it's well worth splashing out on if I fancy some caffeine based, self-indulgence and luxury. Guests who try it are always sceptical, but after tasting, unanimously agree it has a superior, bitter-free taste than the run of the mill stuff.
One of my friends is extremely into coffee so I thought what a better present than this. Dispatched fast and arrived safe, sorry can't say anything about the quality of the coffee.
I ordered this as a gift for my husband quite close to Christmas and was really pleased with the quick delivery. I'm told the product itself is really good too...
I ordered this coffee for special occasions, but we ended up having it almost every day. It is smooth and aromatic, going to order again!
I bought this coffee as a treat for us all to have after our Boxing Day dinner party. The coffee was delivered really quickly and the smell as I opened the bag was fabulous.
It went down a treat with all my guests, and of course the story of how it is produced went down a storm.
I will definately be using this site again. Fantastic service and the coffee is amazing. Highly recommended.
Brought some Kopi Luwak to enjoy on Christmas day. Didn't order until late but even with the standard postage the coffee arrived in time great service. The coffee went down a treat and I'm just about to order some more thank you the love of coffee
This coffee is amazing and so smooth with little or no bitter taste in the mouth, have a couple of cups of this and then go back to your standard coffee and you will think "have i really been drinking this" the only down side is the price but as a treat when you've had a bad day nothing can beat it.
Also delivery was very speedy.
I SAW THIS COFFEE ON AN EPISODE OF RICK STEIN. I HAD PACKET BOUGHT FOR ME AS A GIFT FOR CHRISTMAS AND IT IS REALLY NICE. IT HAS A UNIQUE TASTE AND IS JUST THE RIGHT STRENGTH FOR ME. WILL DEFFINATELY BE BUYING SOME IN THE FUTURE.
I've been wanting to try this coffee for a long time now and it was definitely worth the wait! It's lovely, much smoother than I thought it would be. I will most definitely be ordering again. The delivery time was brilliant as well. I ordered late on a Thursday night and received it on Saturday, I only paid for standard delivery. I would recommend this coffee and company to anyone. Thank you.
Like a lot of people, I watched the Bucket List. I researched kopi Luwak and ultimately purchased some. I'm not exactly a connoisseur of coffee, however I do like a strong filter coffee now and again. Kopi Luwak is what you would expect it to be for the price you have to pay. It's not something I would offer to random visitors to my home though, it's too nice for that - I'll be keeping it for myself.
This coffee is expensive but worth the treat! I bought it for a friend and they are very pleased that I did!
After seeing that film , I had to try the coffee , i was not disappointed , great to drink and talk about , fast delivery top marks .
Absolutely brilliant service and product. I cannot recommend Sheldon and this company highly enough. Thank you!
Read about this coffee in a book and had to try some! The Love of Coffee had the best price and dealt very quickly with an issue I had with my order (my fault, first-time order!) and sent it just as quickly.
The coffee is very rich and smooth. Somehow the taste seems familiar, but is a lot more delicate and refined. It is comforting and even addictive, every sip seems to have a different nuance to the taste.
Will definitely be purchasing again as an occasional treat!
This is certainly a coffee worth trying. It has a distinctive and original flavour (in a good way!) that makes it worth purchasing.
I would definitely recommend this cofffee to fans who would like something a bit different!
Interesting, rich and quite mellow. Very glad to try it.
Bought for my mum for mothers day. She loved it and wants a full sized bag next time!
First heard of this coffee in the film "The Bucket List"
Found the coffee to be strong, but smooth with no after taste. Would recommend everyone to try it. Ideal for the special occasions.
I like so many of those on here, bought the coffee having watched Bucket List.
Having endured endless remarks about it being 'Cat Sh*t Coffee', I invited the members of my team to taste. We sat down with our cafetieres and sampled the taste.
All I can say is that it is pleasant and well worth the investment.
Suffice to say, theloveofcoffee will be getting my next order, their service is remarkable.
Thank you The Love of Coffee, when I had ordered another coffee but that was out of stock so they very kindly replaced it with the Kopi Luwak. I heard a lot about this coffee and it lives up to the hype this is probably one of the best coffee's you will ever taste worth treating yourself to some for special occasions.
A tasty, smoothe, light coffee-not bitter & no 'typical' after taste!
Well worth the price...for a treat! :-)
Some colleagues had been talking about Kopi Luwak coffee & I thought it would be a nice 'thank you' gift to my parents who look after after my wee dog every day ;o) The coffee arrived the day after I placed the order & the coffee went down a treat with my parents. Thanks to 'The Love of Coffee' for the great service - I will definately use you again & I think you will be receiving an order from my parents too, lol ;o)
Delicious coffee with a smooth finish and lovely lingering chocolately taste. Not as bitter as one would expect and perhaps lacked a little depth in flavour but nevertheless a great coffee.
I guess you are paying a premium for the experience and excitement given the particularly interesting production methods, but overall I was not disappointed with either value or quality.
As a first order from The Love of Coffee, I was very impressed with the ordering/delivery process. I placed my order mid morning on Friday and arrived into work on Monday morning with my fresh beans waiting to be ground which was an extra bonus.
Quite a distinctive taste, definitely worth a try :)
Fantastic delivery. Fast and efficient. Felt very safe using my card on this site too. The coffee was a present for my dad, but i might have to get some for myself, It smells so delicious!
Like a lot of people on here, I was intrigued after watching 'The bucket list' and I have to say the coffee is lovely. The first brew I made was very strong but even so the coffee didn't have the bitter after-taste you would expect from making it so strong.
All-in-all a really nice, strong, smooth coffee with excellent service from the website. Fantastic!!
Excellent service, outstandingly good products, guaranteed to receive fresh coffee every time. Will definitely shop again!
Bought this coffee as a leaving gift for a colleague. Ordered at short notice and arrived quickly.
I too saw this coffee on Bucket List and thought it would be a good present for my husband who loves different coffee.
He absolutely loved it and thought it was very tasteful and unusual hence the repurchase for his birthday next week.
Fantastic customer service and super fast delivery to BFPO - really impressed. The coffee was bought for a present and the packaging looks very polished and professional.
I bought this coffee as a gift for someone who really knows their coffee and had read about it. Thankfully the recipient shared their gift with me. It was really lovely, something to have on special occassions. I recently bought Bucket List on DVD and spotted the reference to Kopi Luwak coffee.
I have really appreciated the first class customer service and amazing coffee.
I brought this as a present for my son-in-law who has wanted to try it for a long time, so I haven't actually tried it. This was the best price I could find on the net and I was very impressed with the speed of delivery. I will definity be buying again.
I LOVE Coffee and just had to try this ..... I was not disappointed - Strong flavour but no bitter after taste - I took it into work to share the experience and it was a BIG hit - think a few of my colleagues will be placing and order in the not distance future - Coffee lovers ... give it a go !!!!
I just HAD to try this coffee! I saw a piece on TV about the making of it and was eager to give it a go! There is something about drinking the most expensive coffee ever ever ever that is really satisfying. The flavour is quite rich and is equally tasty drunk as a latte as when drunk black. Quite smooth with not a hint of a bitter after-taste. I will certainly be buying more. A great talking point at the dinner table!
The 5 star rating is for the excellent service and delivery rather than the coffee itself, which is a present for a friend.
I bought this as a present so haven't actually tasted it yet (although I am certainly looking forward to sharing a cup very soon)! Excellent price and very quick secure delivery.
Having seen this on various cooking programs i was determined to try it. I wasnt disappointed, it has a great and unique flavour and i will be buying more as gifts in the future. Give it a try!!
Dear The Love of Coffee: I just wanted to add a review to your site. 'Purchased the Kopi Luwak and Jamacain Blue Mountain coffee beans as an unusual Father's Day gift. The delivery service was excellent and very quick with Customer Services being the best I have experienced in a long time. I had emailed to ask for a Kopi Luwak certificate to be included in my delivery as it was a gift - not only did I get an immediate, polite and friendly reply but the coffee and certificate arrived the next day. I have not tried the coffees as I left my Dad savouring the choice but the delicious smell when I opened the delivery pack was amazing. I have no hesitation to recommend The Love of Coffee and definitely will be using them again for Dad's birthday and to treat myself to some of their exotic coffees. Thank you for the excellent service, exciting collection and fair pricing'. Truely excellent service and look forward to ordering more coffee in the near future.
Great website, fantastic service, amazing coffee. I will definitely be using The Love of Coffee again. Many Thanks!
The distinctive taste of this coffee made it a real treat. the price wasn't bad either. I will definitely buy again as the service was outstanding!!!
I haven't tried the coffee yet as it was bought as a present. The service was very good and i would use TLOC again, i would also recommend getting yourself some coffee.
I bought this coffee after reading reviews.And was delighted with it, very smooth tasting.I was also impressed with the prompt service and would have no hesitation in ordering again.
The Civit Coffee is for a "Bushtucker Trial" for a livley Sixth Form Assembly in our school. The service in getting it to us was first class and I am sure the product will be too.
A must try and a fantastic gift. The flavour is luxuriously strong, perfect kick start to the morning! Would highly recommend to any coffee lovers, it is more than worth the money. Give it a try!
My daughter had raved about this coffee so I decided to try it and was delighted with it and it was delivered much quicker than I had expected and would recommend it to anyone.
Bought this coffee for my fussy father in law, who is an avid coffee fan. He loved it! I would highly recommend Kopi Luwak, and excellent service from The Love of Coffee!
Fine ground for espresso. Round and smooth medium-body with no rough edges. Complex cocoa and cashew with a lifted, slightly sweetening finish. Excellent.
Special note for the personal, speedy and exceptional service from tloc after a Royal Mail disaster
Thank you so much. I ordered Kopi Luwak on the Thursday as a last minute birthday present for my husband, and it arrived beautifully gift packaged on the Friday. He's been waiting to try this coffee and he loved it. I'll definitely be ordering again from The Love Of Coffee.
Firstly, the service from the website was brilliant. Smooth transaction with zero problems. Fast postage.
The coffee was bought for my coffee loving boyfriend.
Sat down christmas morning with this new coffee. It was very nice. Smooth, not bitter at all.
Totally worth buying the 50g if you are just curious. 50g will make more than 3 cups of coffee. it''s quite strong so you won''t need as much.
THEN we told coffee came from poop. His face dropped. Ha.
Great service from TLOC. Arrived on the day i was expecting and well packaged. I had been drinking a Cuban blend before i ordered this but decided it was time to take on Kopi Luwak off the ole bucket list. I was expecting a strong coffee so wasnt shocked that it wasnt overly strong, though family thought it was quite strong. I found the Cuban blend alot stronger.
I bought this coffee for my wife for Christmas as we are both fine coffee lovers. However, she turned her nose up at it because of how it is made. Her loss, as I thought it was the best coffee I have ever tasted. It has a very well rounded flavour with no bitterness or earthy undertones. There is a slight sweetness to it which comes through due to the bitterness not being there. The trouble is, ever since trying this wonderful coffee, everything else now taste mediocre in comparison. I will definitely be buying more once my current bag runs out. Delicious. Why can''t all coffee taste as good as this.
My husband bought me this coffee for Christmas. It is simply the best tasting coffee ever - rich and deep, yet sweet with no bitter aftertaste. Do not be put off by its origin....all true coffee lovers should thank the civet cat!
Treat this coffee as you would treat fine wines or rare whiskies and savour every sip; it''s delightful.
Customer service deserves a five star rating too, with very friendly and helpful staff. We will definitely use TLOC again and will recommend it to all our friends. Thanks.
Knew about the coffee from watching ''The Bucket List''. So thought why not give it a go. The coffee itself is very smooth, strong yet mellow. Would definitely have again. It is quite a remarkable coffee.
Excellent service. Fast postage. The coffee was a gift and was nicely wrapped ,iI' a convert and will happily try other new tastes in the future.
I was very pleased with the price the quality and the speed of service. I will certainly use this company in future for my specialist coffee needs
Fast service, even delivery to the middle of nowhere where I ordered it as a present. Best price available online as well. Very impressed.
Having now ordered this particular coffee several times, I have found the quality and service to be excellent and consistent. I will be using The Love Of Coffee for all my future purchases and would highly recommend them.
I saw this coffee on a Rick Stein programme on TV. It became part of my friends and my must do things in 2013. A great full flavoured distinctive tasting coffee. A depth of flavour I've not encountered in coffee. The flavour appear to improve as my taste buds adjusted to the taste, an absolute treat. I recommend any coffee lover gives it a whirl. I was also impressed with the ease of transaction, and delivery speed. 5 stars all round
A must for coffee lovers
“Just because it is the most expensive does not make it the best”…. a saying I have had to listen to all my life. However this coffee means I will never have to endure that saying again, as It is undoubtedly the most expensive and best coffee I have ever had the pleasure of drinking. The delivery service was excellent and very quick.
Kopi luwak, purchased from the love of coffee, was fantastic, having tried it through a friend, i have since placed my second order for the coffee, Its great, full of flavour and strong. For all coffee connoisseurs its a must try at least once. Highly recommended.
Great service from the love of coffee, great coffee, very smooth and silky almost, best price I could find with delivery, thankyou!
Bought this for a good friend who is a bit of a coffee buff, he just said yum, yum, yum, and I think that says it all
Bought this for a friend who has always wanted to try it. Speedy delivery and he loves it.
Excellent Coffee, excellent service!
The coffee arrived very promtply and very well wrapped. In honesty, I ordered this coffee with a friend as a pay day treat and something a little unusual to try. What we experienced was an amazing aroma on opening, and the smoothest, least bitter, most full-flavoured yet well balanced coffee I could have imagined. Really delicious. Great service from theloveofcoffee.co.uk. Thank you.
Service was excellent. Very quick delivery and at a reasonable price.
My coffee arrived a lot quicker than I thought it would. Within 2 days, it was here. Excellent!
Absolutely first class service. I ordered several different coffee blends as well as Kopi Luwak as Christmas presents, they arrived the next day even though I had requested 2nd class postal delivery. A small hiccup with my order was sorted out immediately - customer service is top notch! Thank you!
Initially bought Kopi Luwak as a Christmas present. Slightly more expensive than the other varieties but ideal for a special occasion or treat - Recipient loved it! Was impressed with speed of delivery, and recently ordered Sumatra Mandheling, again for a present. Although I received a different coffee to what was ordered, I decided to just keep it. On notifying The Love of Coffee, they sent me the correct one as well, at no further cost. Great customer service!
Excellent with speedy delivery.
Great product, great price, immediate delivery.
Great Service - very quick delivery as always.
I have used this Company for about 4 years now as our future Son in Law loves the Civet Coffee. I had a problem completing my online order this time and within minutes someone called me and he helped me through the process. It was brilliant and the coffee arrived the very next day. Wouldn't want to try anywhere else, they are so kind and very very helpful. "The Love of Coffee" I will be back very soon.
Excellent service and delivery. Great communications. Loved the chocolate coffee beans too.
The coffee was a present for my husband, he was really pleased and said it was a lovely smooth coffee, it was really quick and easy to order and also came within two days! I will use this again and recommend it to every one!! A BIG THANKS!
India Monsoon Malabar is still my favourite coffee I've tried, and I thoroughly enjoyed the cat poop coffee too!
The service I received from The Love of Coffee was just simply great! Ordered 2 days ago (standard delivery), and I am enjoying the coffee today. Now, I am not an expert, and I have tried to make the coffee with the best knowledge I could gather from the internet, still I am sure it would taste completely different if it was done by a barista.
Still, the coffee is absolutely great, tastes lovely, and the fact I'm drinking a very rare one makes it even tastier. :)
Very prompt service and person I gave gift liked the coffee very much.
I shared a packet of Kopi Luwak with my family on Sunday, AMAZING!
Hi, I purchased this coffee to celebrate my father's 90th birthday. All of my family are avid coffee drinkers, black no sugar. Amazing is the only word close to describing the fullness and depth of flavour of this remarkable coffee, the finest coffee any of us had ever tasted. Good strong mellow flavour with a lovely aftertaste. Very expensive for mere mortals and not for everyday. Put it on your bucket list
Easy to order, came on time, tasted superb.
We love this coffee, this is probably my 4th purchase! Such a smooth blend, exceptional taste, it's just amazing. I especially love having relatives or friends taste without knowing what it is, my 92 year old grandfathers face was hilarious when I told him what it was, he loved it! Guess thats where my expensive taste came from originally.
