Sumatran kopi luwak farmer gathers up the droppings of civet cats which eat
cherries, digest them, then egest them in their feces.

*Kopi luwak* (Indonesian pronunciation: [ˈkopi ˈlu.aʔ]), or
*civet coffee*, refers to the coffee that includes part-digested coffee
cherries eaten and defecated by the Asian palm civet (/Paradoxurus

Producers of the coffee beans argue that the process may improve coffee
through two mechanisms, selection and digestion. Selection occurs if the
civets choose to eat cherries. Digestive mechanisms may improve the flavor
profile of the coffee beans that have been eaten. The civet eats the
cherries for the fleshy pulp, then in the digestive tract, fermentation
occurs. The civet's protease enzymes seep into the beans, making shorter
peptides and more free amino acids.^[2] Passing through a civet's
intestines the cherries are then defecated with other fecal matter and

The traditional method of collecting feces from wild civets has given way
to intensive farming methods in which civets in battery cage systems are
force fed the cherries. This method of production has raised ethical
concerns about the treatment of civets due to "horrific conditions"
including isolation, poor diet, small cages and a high mortality
rate.^[3]^[4] A 2013 BBC investigation of intensive civet farming in
Sumatra found conditions of animal cruelty.^[5] Intensive farming is also
criticised by traditional farmers because the civets do not select what
they eat, so the cherries which are fed to them in order to flavor the
coffee are of poor quality compared to those beans collected from the
wild.^[6] According to an officer from the TRAFFIC conservation programme,
the trade in civets to make kopi luwak may constitute a significant threat
