The Bantai Civet Coffee is made of 100 percent pure, wild, and organic medium roasted Robusta whole beans. The sweetest and ripest berries are chosen for an even and lavish taste. This gourmet coffee is nutty and spicy, with hints of almond and ginger. The coffee beans came from the Cordillera Mountain range in Ifugao, Philippines, and only wild Civet coffee beans are collected. The Civet coffee is shade-grown in a 2000-acre Civet conservation area that is pure rainforest, and with coffee plants intertwined with it. The coffee is also bi-cropped and is chemical-free. Any expansion of coffee growth is done with minimal impact. There is no clear cutting, no monocropping, and no eradication of indigenous and endemic coffee plants. The Civet Coffee is roasted in the USA to ensure a superior roast and longer shelf-life. Coffee is packaged in a 4-ounce hermetically sealed aluminum foil bag to ensure sustained freshness. Bantai Civet Coffee was started as a US Peace Corps project, funded by USAID, to conserve the wild Civet population. Wild civets in the northern Philippines were close to extinction before the coffee project began, and now their population is flourishing. The conservation area is open to the public, so anyone can come and view how the Bantai Civet coffee is made. The Bantai Civet Coffee is a socially-minded and delicious product that coffee lovers will enjoy.
