No to Kopi Luwak.

Kopi luwak. Came across many shops in Jakarta airport selling kopi luwak, which is marketed as wild sourced & world’s most expensive coffee. A friend recently shared an email stating untold cruelty on civets to produce large amounts of kopi luwak. Then, this evening, I got to listen to Weiting, a local civet researcher, who showed us a video of civets kept in captivity for ‘wild-sourced’ kopi luwak production.
