Weasel Coffee

How is weasel coffee made?  

The coffee is made when Weasels (asian palm civets) eat the coffee cherries. The cherries go through the civets digestive system, get partially digested and excreted. The beans get collected by farmers and then are allowed to ferment. Farmers then meticulously clean and roast the beans to make Weasel coffee. Hence the name Weasel poop coffee.

The unique production process of natural enzymes digestion and fermentation decrease the bitterness of the coffee and enhance its sweetness giving it a unique caramel flavor and smoothness not typically found in coffee.  

Types of Weasel Coffee

Weasel coffee farms can be wild or farmed. In wild coffee the civets freely roam and select their own coffee cherries to consume which influence the flavor resulting in a premium coffee.
