enlargeBrewing Luwak Coffee

Brewing this specialty coffee is not too much different than any other coffees. The Italian-made espresso machines most likely deliver the best result to enjoy this coffee. The crema (the rich golden layer on the top of fresh brewed espresso) presents the hint of caramel when you taste this Luwak coffee.

For most coffee lovers, the taste is not comparable with other coffees. Not a single hint of bitterness with a delicious sweet taste coating in your mouth at the end. However, the result may vary depending on the type of espresso machine/drip coffee maker that you are using and the water temperature.

Each 4oz bag of Luwak Coffee beans is enough to make exactly ten shots of espresso (23 grams per shot) or approximately 12 cups of regular black coffee.

Always grind the right portion of coffee beans upon brewing. Do not grind more that what you are going to use at the time, because coffee grounds lose their aroma very quickly.
