Tips for enjoying Luwak Star Gourmet Coffe:
There are a couple of ways to drink our luwak coffee (or kopi luwak in Indonesian). You can use a filter drip coffee maker (fine grind), or a French press (medium to coarse grind), or a siphon (fine to medium grind) using a burr grinder preferably to grind the coffee beans, so you’ll get a more consistent grind. You need about 8-10 grams (2 tablespoons) of ground coffee to make a cup of coffee with 6 oz of water, then follow the instruction of your coffee maker to make your coffee.
How to drink luwak coffee the Indonesian traditional way:
1. After you grind your coffee beans, put the ground coffee into a coffee cup. The standard “cup” of coffee uses 6 oz (177 ml) of water for 10 grams (2 tablespoons) of ground coffee by SCAA (Specialty Coffee Association of America).
2. Put fresh filtered hot water between 195 degrees Fahrenheit and 205 degrees Fahrenheit (90 degrees Celcius and 96 degrees Celcius) into the cup and stir.
3. Let the ground coffee go down to the bottom of the cup and wait for a few minutes for the nice luwak coffee flavor to come out before you drink it. If you want to, you can use a strainer to get the ground coffee out of your cup.
DO NOT put milk, cream or sugar into the coffee. If you want to really taste the difference of luwak coffee flavor, we advise that you don’t put anything in your coffee.
Our coffee bags are laminated with the highest quality and consistency that provides the ultimate barrier to protection against UV lighting, moisture, and oxygen. Our stand up foil pouches also come with a one-way degassing valve to release CO2 from inside the bag without allowing O2 to come in to keep the beans fresh. Once open, you can keep the beans fresh in the original packaging by simply sealing the bag with the zip closure. We recommend storing coffee unopened until ready for use. For optimum freshness, store coffee in a cool, dark place. Once open store in an airtight container. Do not refrigerate or freeze.
This coffee is not as acidic or bitter compared to regular coffee. It’s actually a little bit sweet, even without sugar. It is smooth and has a clean after taste. Coffee connoisseurs say that it even has a hint of caramel or chocolate in it.
