What makes coffee luwak so special is that it's defecated, not decaffeinated. The Palm civet have an important role in producing this unusual product.The civets eat the fleshy pulp of the bright red coffee berries. The beans remain inside their stomach for a while – fermenting, before being passed – undigested. Then they are collected, washed, sun-dried, lightly roasted, and crushed into fine coffee grounds .The biological theory is that proteolytic enzymes seep into the beans while they are fermenting, making shorter peptides and free amino acids. The emerging beans yield an aromatic coffee with much less bitterness for drinking pleasure.They are efficient mass-production machines judging by the constant stream of beans falling onto the cage floor.You can participate in the coffee making process, you roast a crucible of beans over an open fireplace on the earthen floor, as the beans turn black and it’s done after six minutes. An unforgetable experince in your lifetime. Bali coffee extraordinaire is an interesting experience to sample the unusual beverage. This is what travel is all about.
