Kopi Luwak History

Kopi Luwak or Civet coffee is coffee that come from Indonesia. Initially, coffee cultivation experiments carried out by the Dutch at various locations in Indonesia. Coffee plants can grow well and the yields are also good in there. At the past time, Indonesia was the Dutch colony and coffee is a marketable commodity of Europe. In that time, coffee is a obligatory for Indonesian farmers plant.
In Java, coffee plantation mainly took place in Bogor, Sukabumi, Banten and East Priangan. After spreading to the island of Java, the coffee plant spread to other areas, such as East Timor, the island of Sumatra, Sulawesi and Bali Island, until the entire territory of Indonesia.
Ironically, farmer workers may not take the coffee harvest. Farmer workers in this context is that workers paid by employer and prohibited from taking coffee bean harvest. Prohibition is then developed. By this prohibition, the folklore of civet coffee discovery take the basic.
Reputedly, around the 19th century in Central Java, a Farmer workers discovered civet droppings around the coffee plantation. There are coffee beans that are still intact in it. A very high (or too high) curiosity makes him do 'reckless'. The feces is taken home and treated like any other coffee beans before it eventually brewed and ... drunk.
Although drinking civet droppings is a unusual thing, but the more unusual is what happened next. The farmer worker like it and told to another farmer worker about it. And so they enjoy this coffee clandestinely. It continues to happen until one day the head of estates and planters find out about this 'new coffee'. Apparently this 'new coffee' favored by the coffee connoisseur. Therefore, the head of the plantation workers and planters asking farmers to collect the beans from the civet dung with the lure of wages given.
In Java, the civet which drop the bean for civet coffee called as Luwak and the word 'coffee' spelled as kopi. Therefore the civet coffee also known as Kopi Luwak (besides known as the most expensive coffee in the world). Although this story does not have a written historical source, but this is the most plausible story that I found for the history of civet coffee or Kopi Luwak history.
