A fellow survivor. :lol:


Sometime in the early 90's, I had a 100lb bag of harvested beans on the estate that wasn't enough to warrant dragging off to the village to sell. So it was left in storage, the idea being to pick more and top up the bag. It got wet, and the hulls sloughed off (another legitimate way of hulling the beans, but I didn't know that). With the hardest part of processing the coffee done by old mammy nature, I decided to experiment in making my own coffee. Parching/Roasting the beans and then grinding them was fun in it's own way. Of course, I found out the hard way what happens when you roast it for a little too long - but it didn't taste that bad! In fact I still have a preference for a slightly burned flavoured coffee.
Boiling the crap out of coffee grounds murders the flavour, but too many camps with too few percolators have all but destroyed whatever palate I had.
Jose Perez comes very close to the flavour I remember, and I much prefer it over Hong Wing... but an addiction is only an addiction, so you grab the nearest thing (which ends up being HW) and take it home and boil it. As long as the aroma I get when I open the bag still makes me want to pass out LSD-style, I will drink it.

peppercorns has but its expensive.
its probably not fresh either.
coffee loses most of its original taste a couple weeks after roasting(if its whole bean)
ground beans lose after 15 minutes.

no prob, this is why the espresso sold locally is very watery, sour and bitter.
a proper espresso is thick and goopy, in fact a proper espresso might surprise a lot of people because it wouldn't be what they expect, they might either like or hate it.

Anyone ever heard of "Kopi Luwak" coffee?

Postby brainchild » June 2nd, 2011, 2:24 pm

I heard a pound of kopi luwak can cost anywhere from $100 to $3,000, and a single cup may cost as much as $80...US dollars.

Quote from Wikipedia;
Sumatran kopi luwak farmer shows beans prior to cleaning and roasting, Sumatra, IndonesiaKopi luwak (Malay pronunciation: [ˈkopi ˈlu.aʔ]), or civet coffee, is one of the world's most expensive and low-production varieties of coffee. It is made from the beans of coffee berries which have been eaten by the Asian Palm Civet (Paradoxurus hermaphroditus) and other related civets, then passed through its digestive tract.[1] A civet eats the berries for their fleshy pulp. In its stomach, proteolytic enzymes seep into the beans, making shorter peptides and more free amino acids. Passing through a civet's intestines the beans are then defecated, keeping their shape. After gathering, thorough washing, sun drying, light roasting and brewing, these beans yield an aromatic coffee with much less bitterness, widely noted as the most expensive coffee in the world.


Kopi luwak is produced mainly on the islands of Sumatra, Java, Bali and Sulawesi in the Indonesian Archipelago, and also in the Philippines (where the product is called motit coffee in the Cordillera and kape alamid in Tagalog areas) and also in East Timor (where it is called kafé-laku). Weasel coffee is a loose English translation of its name cà phê Chồn in Vietnam, where popular, chemically simulated versions are also produced.
