Kopi Luwak: Cruelty in Every Cup

Kopi Luwak: Cruelty in Every Cup

Articles, Blog , , , , , , , 89 Comments

Inside the civet coffee industry. This is a civet cat PETA Asia found that in order to make Kopi Luwak civet cats, many of whom have been caught in the wild, are confined to small
barren cages and fed a diet of coffee berries. The civets feces, which contain
the digested coffee bean, are then processed and the beans are sold as a
so-called luxury item. For this, the civets are deprived of all freedom, family, exercise and everything else that is essential to their well-being. They
are deprived of any semblance of a normal life.
Mislabelling is common with coffee from cage civets droppings sometimes sold as
wild sourced. After several years of confinement the cats production drops.
Some are released into the wild, although many do not survive because of their
poor condition. While confined the cats go insane
whirling circling constantly biting at the bars of their cage and engaging in
repetitive body motions. Forced to eat a nutritionally deficient diet of coffee
berries the cats lack vitamins and nutrients which along with the stress of
confinement causes their health to deteriorate and their fur to fall out.
Never purchase civet coffee if you see it being sold, please
complain. Write to the retailer and report it to PETA
I’m Peter Egan for PETA. Thank you

    Another rich people "luxury" that involves animal cruelty. It's not enough the bastards torture geese for their livers and skin live animals for their fur. I'm waiting for God to just eliminate it all and start over again.

  • YNWAshaun Post author

    I seriously hate any sort of animal abuse. It's sickening. This video is sad 🙁

  • GenAdams Post author

    why can't store brand fucking coffe cut it? i really cant imagine civet coffee being SOOO MUCH better… it's just plain bigotry, the fact that it costs thousands in Harrods. also, fungi might dwell in beans laying on the ground, so it might be bad for your health (not like those bigots dont deserve a little sickness)

    im vegan but not subscribing because peta care for meat eating animals and no meat eaters at all deserve life or mercy as they do not give it themselves.

  • Theo Osborne Post author

    please reply if u have the same logically advanced opinion

  • Xavier Ku Post author

    Theo Osborne – You need to come off the meds your logic is nonsensical, WILD animals don't have the moral thought processes that we possess, some are natural meat/insect eaters but they can't differentiate the ethical process and simply act natural according to their species, we on the other hand can make the ethical choice which you have, those who don't make that step are the barbaric beings.

  • Xavier Ku Post author

    Regardless if anyone likes PETA or not, they carry out or motivate others to engage in selfless actions to try to protect those species that fall prey to the cruelty of the most vicious species, that of the human variety.

    I've tried kopi luwak in Indonesia … Won't drink it anymore

  • Afrizan Nurpermadi Post author

    there is a natural production of kopi luwak. it's done by collecting coffe seeds that have been eaten by civets as the result of their poops. Those are really difficut to find.and rare. So, to fulfill the high demand, the industry have to find a way. And that's why they captive civets and force them out to eat coffee seeds.
    that's horrible.
    and the easiest way to stop this cruelty is to stop to consume this kind of coffee. start from ourself.

  • Rosa B. Post author

    This is what some of us are capable of

  • ShotTower1 Post author

    I have purchased this coffee because I thought they still collected it from wild animals. I won't ever buy this again.

  • Alessio Arzola Post author

    Not only is it cruel… it is a disgusting thing to drink when you think of how it is produced.

  • twoshotlatte Post author

     I thought the beans were collected from wild animals. Civets are supposedly drawn to the best beans, but humans are choosing what beans to feed them. The level of cruelty displayed in the video is sickening. 

  • jasonla204 Post author

    PETA is cruel to every animal they meet………………

  • Silencio Post author

    this video made me buy civet coffee

  • DJFlare84 Post author

    So, they DON'T actually collect their wild-harvested beans from civets in the wild…
    They have NO justification for the price of their coffee since they are able to mass produce it (they apparently justify the pricetag because of the wild-ness aspect).
    And to top it all off, most people think the taste is awful.

    Literally the only thing that wasn't a lie was that the beans came out of a rodent's ass. Everything else is… (wait for it)… BULLSHIT.

    You could say the Kopi Luwak industry is… FULL OF CRAP.

    Are you kidding? People really want to drink coffee shit out by an animal? Shit Coffee? Who the fuck thought that up? What the hell is our world coming to? 

  • carnage2112029 Post author

    Kopi Luwak processed from Civet is 1 of the most sublimely richest flavour in a coffee if not the most.
    Kopi Luwak is NOT MADE FROM EXCREMENT; the coffee beans when digested by the Civets are not properly digested because of their digestive system. The fermentation occurs in their digestive tract and the enzymes create more amino acids making the coffee richer. Which is then cleaned roasted and sold at really high prices, Harrods sell it at $10000 in a silver gold bag.

    shame on those people for the cruelty they are showing towards animals.may god bless peta for their selfless actions

  • Bless All Post author

    Horrific cruelty! There is a tremendous variety of coffees worldwide to satisfy everyone's taste. Absolutely no need to make the civet suffer and die in order to produce coffee. However, there is a need to be cruel and greedy.

  • Ahmad Nizar Post author

    actually, we can't generalize it for every Luwak coffee trader. As far as I knew, Kopi luwak Cikole uses animal welfare principle in their production process. they limited the production, and also supply nutritional feed for luwak.

    the problem is how they mistreat the civet coffee. not buying 'Luwak coffee' is not the relevant solution. the thing to do is the government making good regulation over it and doing strict monitoring process . ones that bring justice for both consumer, farmer, industry, and civet itself.

    it's possible to bring justice for those as long asgoverment has made the good regulation and monitoring process.
