More on Vita’s Kopi Luwak coffee

| June 17, 2008

This Indonesian civet, called a luwak, has a curious diet that includes eating ripe coffee cherries. Once these cherries go through its digestive system, they are harvested and washed, and then the beans are roasted.

This rare coffee is the most expensive coffee in the world.

Vita sourced some of this coffee as part of our Farm Direct coffee program and held a cupping last night for wholesale customers and other friends.

Michael Hebberoy went on The Bob Rivers Show while the crew did an on-air tasting. Click here to listen.
