All About Kopi Luwak – The Most Expensive Coffee In The World!

Kopi luwak is the world’s most expensive coffee. The main factor of it’s high price is the uncommon method of producing such a coffee. It has been produced from the coffee beans which have been digested by a certain Indonesian cat-like animal called then palm civet or also civet cat.
Believe me it's not so special, but it is interesting walking around their facility

Just bought my first jar of the NEW STYLE Nescafé Gold Blend. :( Bloody awful.
The taste is completely different to the original
style and there is a dark brown bitter
residue left in the bottom of the cup!
As some of you have done, I went to their website and read their explanation for changes
and decided they were more for costs not taste.
Last time I will ever buy their coffee.

I've lost my mind and I am making no effort to find it.

We've been getting the old style 'Red Cup' from BKK but even they have run out now. I'm getting used to Moccona.
I noticed Makro have shelves of the 'new blend'. Doesn't seem to be moving!!

It's a pretty terrible bitter taste to swallow

Have you guys tried a French Press. It is so easy to make real coffee. The capsule machines are another good but more expensive alternative.

Used to use one long ago for dinner parties. For years we've owned a Siemens Surpresso coffee machine that grinds the beans and makes regular coffee and espresso, with a steam tube too for cappucino or hot water (used to use that but don't bother now). Lasted donkeys years and so simple. Coffee beans cost a bit more than instant but the taste is worth it. It says it's made 5978 brews to date!

I use a a Philips Senseo, which is going out of fashion a bit in the U.K., but this means the pouches are very cheap. I brought a converter to use ‘real’ ground coffee so as long as it keeps going shouldn’t become obsolete as many of these things do. I’m sorry but I don’t drink instant, god knows how they get away with calling it coffee!

They are are good machine when they are working. Just managed to get a load of coffee pads for it from Europe when it decided to decided it no longer wanted to make coffee. Just waiting on bits for it at the moment so it can be resurrected.
