Made of high quality porcelain and packed nicely in a gift box, it makes a unique gift that will be remembered. Bone china is a type of soft-paste porcelain that is composed of bone ash, feldspathic material, and kaolin. It has been defined as ware with a translucent body containing a minimum of 30% of phosphate derived from animal bone and calculated calcium phosphate. Developed by English potter Josiah Spode, bone china is known for its high levels of whiteness and translucency, and very high mechanical strength and chip resistance. Its high strength allows it to be produced in thinner cross-sections than other types of porcelain. Like stoneware it is vitrified, but is translucent due to differing mineral properties. Elegant and attractive dinnerware set, perfect for everyday use or a holiday gathering.

Your dining room table is a place where stories are shared and personalities shine. Just like the people who sit around your table, your serveware has its own stories and will help you create new memories with your friends and loved ones. From ceramic pottery to glass vases, set your table with serving pieces that add even more personality, color and texture to your dining experience.
Invite serveware from around the world to join your table settings. For special occasions, dress up your plates with a striking Imari charger from 19th-century Japan or incorporate Richard Ginori’s Italian porcelain plates into your dining experience. Celebrate the English ritual of afternoon tea with a Japanese tea set and an antique Victorian kettle. No matter how big or small your dining area is, there is room for the stories of many cultures and varied histories, and there are plenty of ways to add pizzazz to your meals.
Add different textures and colors to your table with dinner plates and pitchers of ceramic and silver or a porcelain lidded tureen, a serving dish with side handles that is often used for soups. Although porcelain and ceramic are both made in a kiln, porcelain is made with more refined clay and is more durable than ceramic because it is denser. The latter is ideal for statement pieces — your tall mid-century modern ceramic vase is a guaranteed conversation starter. And while your earthenware or stoneware is maybe better suited to everyday lunches as opposed to the fine bone china you’ve reserved for a holiday meal, handcrafted studio pottery coffee mugs can still be a rich expression of your personal style.
“My motto is ‘Have fun with it,’” says author and celebrated hostess Stephanie Booth Shafran. “It’s yin and yang, high and low, Crate & Barrel with Christofle silver. I like to mix it up — sometimes in the dining room, sometimes on the kitchen banquette, sometimes in the loggia. It transports your guests and makes them feel more comfortable and relaxed.”
Introduce elegance at supper with silver, such as a platter from celebrated Massachusetts silversmith manufacturer Reed and Barton or a regal copper-finish flatware set designed by International Silver Company, another New England company that was incorporated in Meriden, Connecticut, in 1898. By then, Meriden had already earned the nickname “Silver City” for its position as a major hub of silver manufacturing.
At the bar, try a vintage wine cooler to keep bottles cool before serving or an Art Deco decanter and whiskey set for after-dinner drinks — there are many possibilities and no wrong answers for tableware, barware and serveware. Explore an expansive collection of antique and vintage glass, ceramics and serveware today on 1stDibs.
90,000 Coffee lovers to note. Part one. How to find cups for coffee
K ofe is one of the most popular drinks in the world. Thanks to the caffeine it contains, it has a stimulating effect. They drink coffee in the morning, during the working day, there are also those who like to drink it at night. The culture of coffee consumption covers most countries, there are thousands of ways to make it, thanks to which you can discover the different nuances of taste and aroma of roasted coffee beans. An important place in the coffee culture is occupied by the dishes from which it must be drunk.Correctly selected coffee cups can multiply the pleasure of coffee and make your friends and acquaintances envy.
In addition to coffee, there is also a great variety of coffee drinks like latte, cappuccino, glace, etc. Naturally, they need their own special dishes and we will devote a separate material to this topic someday. Now we will restrict ourselves only to utensils for ordinary black coffee, which is brewed at home and in the office.
The first thing to look for when choosing a coffee pot is the size.The smallest coffee cups have a volume of approx. 60 ml (they are sometimes also called “half cups”), the largest – 180-200 ml. Different countries have different traditions of using coffee pots of different sizes. For example, in the United States, 180 ml cups are commonly used as coffee utensils. In Russia, although 100-130 ml cups are considered the generally accepted standard, very often (especially in offices) you can see people drinking coffee from standard 200-250 ml mugs.
The size of the pot is often correlated with the strength of the beverage.The stronger the coffee, the less utensils you have to use for it. Otherwise, you can get too much caffeine and this feeling is unlikely to be pleasant. However, small cups still have more advantages – they are sleeker in appearance and coffee cools more slowly in them due to the smaller evaporation area. If your coffee needs are not limited to one small cup, then you can always put a coffee pot full of fresh coffee next to it or leave the drink in a Turk or a coffee maker.
Further, the material from which the coffee cup is made is very important.The most important rule here is to avoid plastic dishes whenever possible. There are very few things in the world that fit together as badly as plastic and coffee. If you have a coffee machine at work that dispenses coffee in disposable plastic cups, it is best to immediately pour the drink into a more decent container.
In shops you can find coffee dishes made of porcelain, ceramics and glass. Porcelain is perhaps the most classic and noble material, perfect for coffee.Depending on the specifics of production, porcelain cups can be thick and heavy or thin and light. Bone porcelain cups (in Russia they are made by the Imperatorsky and Dulevo porcelain factories) are elegant and light, but compared to their hard porcelain counterparts, they are less durable and require delicate handling.
Ceramics and its varieties (majolica, earthenware) are also traditional materials for coffee cups. Ceramic dishes are strong enough, keep heat well, and, as a rule, are cheaper than porcelain, but also less “noble”.
Glass coffee cups are usually made of heat-resistant glass. The main advantage of glass cups is durability. Also, if they are made of transparent glass, you can enjoy the color of the drink. Nevertheless, glass is the least common material for coffee dishes and is inferior in aesthetics even to ceramics, not to mention porcelain.
An intermediate version – glass-ceramic dishes. This material is as strong as glass, but looks like ceramic. Glass-ceramic dishes are often used in inexpensive catering establishments; we would not recommend using them for personal use.
In recent years, thermal dishes made of glass and porcelain have become more and more fashionable. Thanks to double walls and a vacuum interlayer, coffee in such dishes stays hot much longer and the risk of burns is reduced to a minimum. In addition, thermal dishes are made without handles and take up less space than traditional cups.
Finally, the most important thing to look for when choosing coffee cups is design. Even if you only drink coffee in the morning, remember that the appearance of the coffee cup can affect your mood – and you need to know how to use it.Strict white cups without decals are one of the most common solutions. White cups perfectly set off the natural color of the coffee and are the most neutral in terms of mood.
If, nevertheless, you are more attracted by decorated dishes, then you should be very careful about your choice and, above all, rely on your feelings. The right cup can make you fall in love at first sight. However, as in human relationships, feelings do not always remain constant, and there is no guarantee that falling in love will be replaced by deep affection.But, as a last resort, you can always try again and get another coffee cup.

Ceramic Turks “Moscow Porcelain” for making coffee in the Oriental style
Dear coffee lovers and novice coffee lovers! The team of our store continues a series of articles aimed at making your coffee delicious, aromatic and unique! In this article, we will begin to tell you about the features of the Turks presented in our store. The first line of jazz we have described will be beauties from “Moscow Porcelain” .
Turk “Moscow Porcelain” as an ideal worker for every day
People often spend a lot of time and energy in search of a suitable coffee gum that can be found every morning.Reflections on which material is best to choose a Turk among all their diversity (copper, steel, brass, various types of porcelain: ceramics and fireclay, mountain quartz, aka crystal), how much coffee should be, what are the features of the shape of the case and the neck (narrow or wide) is necessary for a better Turk; they haunt not only novice coffee lovers, but also baristas who are sophisticated in these matters. In our humble opinion, we can give an answer to all these questions with a pottery Turk “Moscow Porcelain”. “Why is this cezva so good?” – you ask and you will be absolutely right, since a real coffee lover or someone who is looking for the perfect gift always has critical thinking.
So, first things first. Let’s start with the properties of the ceramics from which the Turk is made. The coffee cezva is made of refractory and heat-resistant porcelain, which undergoes many tests before it appears on the counter in our store. You can rest assured in the strength of the case, which is not inferior in this parameter even to copper coffee beans .If, however, your plans do not include dropping the Turk on the floor from a height of two meters, in this case, any ceramics is unlikely for you. In the manufacture of the body of these ceramic coffee Turks, the manufacturer used a special technology, kept secret, which endows the cezve with the heat capacity and thermal conductivity necessary for the correct brewing of oriental coffee. The shape of the turkey and its narrow neck allow you to follow the brewing process and make sure that you do not miss the moment when it is time to remove the coffee from the stove.Perfectly executed, these two ingredients, coupled with the peculiarities of the Turkish material, allow you to accumulate the necessary amount of heat for the correct brewing of coffee. In other words, with this cezve you will get aromatic coffee with a rich taste and beautiful foam!
Now let’s move on to the following, no less important points in the structure of our coffee cezve. Its wooden handle, firmly attached to the ceramic body of the cezve, will save you from the problem often encountered by many avid coffee lovers, which is that with regular use, the handle simply falls off with many cezves, unable to withstand everyday stress.In addition to strength, the wood handle does not conduct heat, which means it will not heat up and you will not be able to burn yourself during the cooking process, even with a strong desire! The shape of the handle is specially created so that it is comfortable to hold the turk in the hand, the cezve as a whole has the necessary balance so that the barista’s hand does not get tired during the brewing process, in such a turk you can brew not a single portion of excellent coffee in a row. The next extremely convenient property of this series of Turks is the variability of their volumes, which ranges from small “crumbs” per cup to 200 ml.to really big Turks with a volume of 900 ml. Last, but not the least, I would like to note in relation to the use of this Turk is that it can be used both on electric and gas stoves. If you are the owner of an induction cooker, then do not rush to get upset, this cezve will perfectly serve you together with the special adapter . At the same time, if you are a fan of the classic oriental coffee brewing on the sand, then here, perhaps, the copper colleagues of this cezve will suit better, as well as the special sets and coffee machines for brewing coffee on the sand.
Turks of the “Moscow Porcelain” series are not only wonderful utensils for making coffee, they will also become an excellent decor element in your kitchen or dining room. Their minimalistic design will ideally fit into both modern interior and oriental surroundings. Porcelain of a reddish-brown hue will give the environment a more solid and serious look, possessing the color of warmth and tranquility, such a Turk will make the beginning of your day beautiful and create a solid foundation for its successful continuation.By purchasing such a turk from us, you will not only provide yourself with amazing coffee, but also please yourself and your loved ones with a new unique element of decor. It should be noted separately that, being made by hand, each of these Turks has a special unique shade of color and is unique in the smallest details of its shape. The main thing here is that their physical properties are the same and each Turk of the row is undoubtedly exactly what is needed for the correct brewing of coffee on the stove.
“Moscow Porcelain” – an environmentally friendly product
Separately, I would like to highlight one more feature of these Turks.Nowadays, you can often come across utensils, the production of which and even the preparation of food in which are not only not environmentally friendly processes, but can also harm the health of their owners. Here the Turks of “Moscow Porcelain” differ for the better from many metal Turks, which in case of spoilage of tinning cease to be suitable for making coffee. Eco-friendly heat-resistant ceramics and a wooden handle are all that are part of this cezve, so you don’t have to worry about the materials from which this line is made, all of them are environmentally friendly and created from what nature gives us.Therefore, the Turks of the Moscow Porcelain series are the right choice for those who are worried about the health of themselves and their loved ones, strive for ethical consumption and want to use environmentally friendly (organic) products for food.
To summarize, we want to note once again that the Turks described in this article have all the properties necessary for the correct brewing of oriental coffee on the stove. Moreover, they have a pleasant design, kept in the spirit of minimalism and ergonomics, and are also environmentally friendly representatives of coffee tableware.But when choosing this Turk, it must be remembered that, despite its resistance to temperatures, which is not inferior to copper, it does not imply strong mechanical influences (shocks and falls), and is also much less suitable for cooking in sand, unlike its copper sisters.
Finally, I would like to note that you can buy Turks from the series “Moscow Porcelain” in our online store at the most attractive prices, you can also leave your comments, write your questions to our mail.You can buy or just watch these and many other Turks in the complete catalog Turks on our website.

Top 5 Most Necessary Cymbals
There are a lot of types of plates: from usual for soup to exotic caviar, chill plates for oysters and menazhnyts. But for everyday (and even holiday) use, you only need five.
Deep dining room (aka soup). The most important plate, which, in the absence of others, can be replaced with a plate for main courses, and a salad bowl. The volume of soup bowls is up to 0.5 liters, diameter is 24-30 cm.
The shallow dining room (in everyday life “for the second”) is another universal plate “for everything”, from porridge to pancakes. The diameter of such a plate is 25–32 cm.
The diner is very similar to a shallow canteen in both size and shape, but there are still differences. The previous plate has the edges slightly raised above the bottom, and the diner is completely flat. Diameter up to 30 cm.
Salad bowl – a deep bowl for preparing and serving salads. Salad bowls are both small (up to 15 cm in diameter) and large (up to 30 cm).
Dessert plate.Designed, as the name suggests, for various desserts. The standard diameter of such dishes is 20 cm, but now they produce dessert plates of all sizes and shapes.
What are the criteria for choosing plates
Ceramics. Traditional tableware material.
Pros: convenience, aesthetically pleasing appearance, various shapes and colors. The ceramic dishes are durable enough to be washed in the dishwasher. Minus: it is quite heavy.
Faience. This is a type of ceramic, which differs only in the greater porosity of the clay itself and, as a result, less strength.
Porcelain. Another type of ceramic products. Porcelain plates are distinguished by their elegant look, functionality and convenience. However, porcelain, especially thin-walled porcelain, is very fragile. It should not be washed in the dishwasher.
Glass. Plates made of this material are convenient to use, keep heat well, are resistant to mechanical damage and are durable. The disadvantage of glass plates is more aesthetic: ceramics are more popular because of their appearance.
Wood. Convenient, familiar and environmentally friendly material, which, however, has its drawbacks: wood too quickly and “tightly” absorbs the smells of food. It is not recommended to wash wooden dishes in a dishwasher, as it absorbs moisture and deforms.
Metal. This is a “camping” material. Plates made of aluminum or stainless steel are usually taken with you on camping trips, as they are lightweight and are not afraid of falls. Such dishes have exactly two disadvantages: not very attractive appearance and high thermal conductivity.
Plastic. Durable plastic is often used in the manufacture of children’s tableware.
Although historically plates were made only round (this is due to the peculiarities of pottery production, because it is impossible to make dishes of a different shape on a potter’s wheel), now they are square, rectangular and oval.
Square and rectangular originally served as a “plate for a plate” – substitute dishes for serving, laid down according to etiquette, but from the 20th century they began to be used for serving dishes (especially Japanese and Chinese cuisine). But if you want to use them as regular plates for main courses and snacks, no one will blame you, especially since they are ideal for loft and barnhouse interiors.
Surprisingly true: the color of the plates can affect our perception of food.Modern research has shown that warm colors (orange, red, yellow and light brown) stimulate appetite and increase the amount of food eaten, while blue, lilac and gray, on the contrary, reduce interest in food.
If you are planning to lose weight, buy plates in dark shades: ideally black, dark gray, or blue. First, they tap into the ancient human instincts. In nature, there are almost no products of this color (artificially derived do not count), so the contents of such plates are not perceived by the subconscious as food.The color black is generally known for suppressing appetite.
Classic white plates always provide a contrasting background for any meal. The dishes look delicious on them. On the other hand, a lot of white gives a feeling of cleanliness, which can psychologically reduce the urge to overeat.
From wooden board to porcelain: the history of the most ordinary plate
Interestingly, the plate appeared much earlier than cups, pans and cutlery. Even at the dawn of the Neolithic, people living in caves realized that it is much more convenient to eat not from a common spit or cauldron, but from a personal flat stone or plate.When our ancestors stopped roaming and settled in areas rich in clay soils, the first ceramic dishes were created.
Actually, the first cymbals were not much like the ones we use now. Small earthenware bowls were burned on the fire, not covered with glaze, which is why they quickly deteriorated and did not look too pretty. But even several thousand years before our era, craftsmen came up with the idea of creating plates not only from clay, but also from bronze, silver and gold, decorating them with patterns, chasing, precious stones and letters.The heyday of ceramic dishes fell on Antiquity: the ancient Greeks not only invented different types of plates for different dishes, but also divided them into ordinary dishes for daily use and decorative to decorate the home.
Well, then the Chinese appeared and created the first porcelain – ceramics so thin that it shone through in the light. The Chinese themselves used the dishes for their intended purpose, but in medieval Europe plates made of overseas porcelain were considered something like an outlandish jewel.
By the way, in Russia we got acquainted with ceramic plates only in the Middle Ages. Before that, wooden bowls (deeper, similar to our soup bowls) and bowls, respectively, with a flat bottom were in use.
Kopi-luwak coffee – shit or specialty? (Spoiler: first)
In a special issue of the rubric, gastronomic pathfinder Svetlana Kesoyan, physically located in Bali, tasted and explored the local landmark – coffee, which cute animals shit with.
What is a copy-luwak?
Translated from Indonesian – “coffee luwak”. And the luwak, again in Indonesian, is the same animal that eats berries from the local coffee tree (this is not Arabica or Robusta), and undigested grains come out with its feces. The animal’s feces are collected, washed, dried and fried.
How did coffee even get to Indonesia? What is, in brief, the history of the issue.
According to legend, the first to eat coffee cherries and leaves were goats in Ethiopia, whose agitated behavior was observed by shepherds at night. In the XII century, the population of the Arabian Peninsula brewed their coffee from raw beans. In the 16th century, the Ottoman Empire began to prepare coffee in an oriental way – from fried beans with cardamom, cloves and cinnamon – and was a kind of monopolist on the market, including the European one. The first coffee shop in Italy opened in Venice in 1647, in Paris in 1686 and then everywhere, including Vienna and London.In Russia, the first coffee geek was famous for Peter I, who opened a coffee house in 1703.
In the middle of the 17th century, the coffee tree got to South India, at the beginning of the 18th century, the cunning Dutch brought seedlings to Indonesia – to the islands of Java and Sumatra, and, remarkably, from there coffee migrated to South America. Thus ended the Arab monopoly, and over the next hundred years, the coffee bean swiftly swallowed all suitable territories. Today the coffee leader is Brazil (40% of world production).The rest is grown in Colombia, India, Mexico, Vietnam, Ethiopia and Indonesia – it is in third place.
How did you come up with the kopi-luwak?
The Indonesian mine-luwak business is not more than seventy years old. The main plantations are located on the island of Sumatra – it is there that the luwaks freely eat coffee bushes. At one time, the locals, as they say, looked at their feet and saw a sort of compressed coffee beans – civet calories do not even look disgusting (in general, they mark their territory).And later the most enterprising Sumatrans put the collection of poop on the stream, built a processing and marketing system.

What kind of animal is a luwak?
Indonesians call it luwak, everyone else can use a bunch of other words: civet or Malay palm marten, musang or civet. The latter term is the designation of the entire family of animals related to the mustelids and felines, which are obtained for the sake of fur, meat and musk.These are small animals with dark gray thick fur and white stripes on the muzzle, living in South and Southeast Asia. Luwak sleeps during the day, hunts at night. Civetrers are not vegetarians – they are omnivores, but they love ripe coffee cherries (they select for a person). They live in the trees of tropical forests, next to which coffee plantations can be located.

How is it made?
Mankind collects Arabica or Robusta in the form of coffee cherries.Then the berries are freed from the soft shell dry (dried in the sun or in machines that are now replacing the sun) or wet (the crop is placed in a wiping unit, where it gets rid of most of the pulp, then the mass is sent to the baths, and there this business wanders 2– 3 days). As a result, the grains lose some of their proteins, which improves their taste and character. At the end of fermentation, the beans are washed again and dried. The coffee’s temperament is finally enhanced during the roasting process.
The main trick of the kopi-luwak is that all the manipulations with the beans are done inside the civet.The animal replaces the whole agricultural process: harvesting, getting rid of the pulp, fermentation take place in its digestive system and give a tangible result at the finish. A person can only wash the coffee bean and roast it without jerking it.
What’s going on inside the luwak?
A coffee bean spends a lot of time in it – up to 2 weeks. Under the influence of gastric juice and enzymes in the beans, protein compounds are broken down, so the coffee is soft in taste and does not taste bitter at all.In addition, there is a suspicion that musang anal glands containing civetine – a scent musk – are also implicated in the effect.

For example, elephants. The enterprising Thais, following the kopi-luwak, came up with the idea of passing Arabica through the elephant’s digestive tract: the elephants are fed with fruit and sugar cane with the addition of coffee cherries, and then according to the announced plan. It turns out Black Ivory coffee (black tusk) – also without bitterness. Costs $ 1100 for 1 kg; and one cup, say, in the luxury hotel chain Anantara in the Maldives and on the border of Laos, sells for $ 50.
How much does a luwak mine cost and why is it so expensive?
The most common form of selling a product is 100 gram packs.It can be grains, coarse grinding, the smallest grinding – powder – and powder, packaged in portions in special paper filters on cardboard legs, – for drip coffee. The price does not depend on the type of packaging. On the island of Bali (Indonesia – the country of origin of the product) in an ordinary village supermarket, it turns from $ 10 to $ 50 per pack. The coffee inside is the same, the price depends on the elegance of the packaging. Tourists like the filter packs the most.
The high price per kilogram is due to hard manual human labor on the plantations of Sumatra – collectors of musang feces – literally have to look for raw materials in coffee bushes all day long.Then sort and wash, dry and fry. The price also depends on the distance from Indonesia. Most of the kopi-luwak leave for Japan; Europe and the United States are in second place. A cup of coffee in expensive cities – Tokyo, Singapore, London and New York – can cost $ 100. In Russia, kopi-luvak has come systematically in the last five years, the market is quite chaotic, there are a lot of fakes, but they sell it not so expensive: $ 50-150 per one-hundred-gram package; we managed to find a kilogram pack for 24 thousand rubles.

How to prepare kopi luwak?
The national way of making coffee in Indonesia – not only luwaka – is to brew coffee powder with boiling water, like tea, in a porcelain teapot. Manufacturers of kopi-luwak dance around the preparation, talking about the water temperature and the proportions of the grading, but the essence remains the same. For a teacup, a tablespoon of finely ground (8 g), 160 ml of hot boiled water (80 degrees), and the filter is not needed at all – you just need to wait until the thick settles.It is recommended to brew a coarse grind in the same proportions, but in a French press. If you put it in an American filter coffee maker, it will work too. It is pointless to boil it in a geyser mock and fill an Italian coffee machine with it: under pressure it will lose all its qualities. Adding milk to it or trying to bungle a cappuccino, latte or raf – you never know perverts – is the same obscure idea.
How to drink it?
Adepts advise slowly – to feel the taste and smell.You should not stick to sweets: clog the receptors with sugar. Cold kopi-luwak is like awful cold coffee.
So what color, taste and smell is it?
Fine and coarse roasted beans are darker than Italian roasted arabica. The powder smells like coffee and chocolate; brewed – with caramel, that is, burnt sugar, but all these are subtle things. The smell does not at all resemble strong coffee in the usual sense of the man in the street. There is no acidity in the taste – everything is smooth and really balanced: no sharp sensations, as if a special coffee drink for children has been invented.Mild, without bitterness taste – these parameters of kopi-luwak bring coffee Nazis to the frenzy. It turns out that the copy-luwak does without the density, clarity and richness for which we value coffee.

Does kopy-luwak invigorate in a special way?
No. The special effect of the “drink of the gods, giving heavenly pleasure” – all this nonsense from advertising brochures.Its only supernatural quality is that if you want to love the taste of coffee, then Luwak will help you get used to it. The second option is for the stupid and the rich: you have to spend money somewhere to talk about it.

Is it generally ethical from the point of view of ecology?
An animal living in freedom is interested in coffee cherries only 6 months a year. The rest of the time, the civet does not like coffee, as its digestive system stops producing enzymes that break down the protein compounds in these fruits.
A 2013 BBC investigation has the potential to completely discourage anyone from trying kopi luwak. If you have a heart, of course
Plantations with free-living Musangs are found only in Sumatra, on the rest of the islands they are kept on farms. Fed with coffee cherries of the person’s choice, stimulate the digestive tract with excessive portions of fruit.And there is no healthy and ecological idea in this kind of production of a copy-luwak. Exactly for this reason, green activists regularly protest against the keeping of unfortunate animals in captivity, but this has not led to anything worthwhile. At the same time, coffee from the imprisoned luwak differs from wild coffee for the worse: there is practically no chocolate and caramel. But the price can be just as high. Moreover, in Indonesia there is a Luwak coffee brand, under which regular coffee is sold at a low price.
What to look for when buying?
For the indicated reasons, we will not give leads where to buy a copy-luvak in Moscow. But if you nevertheless decided on this perversion, then it makes sense to demand quality certificates from Moscow sellers, to find out the pedigree of manufacturers and the history of the company. Remember one thing: there are plantations with wild musangs only in Sumatra, the rest of the coffee is cages, and this is worse than crap in the sense of animal protection.

And what do the coffee Nazis say about the kopi-luwak?
Chef-barista of the Coffeemania chain
“The answer is simple: the experts do not think about it, because this type of coffee is no different. If you compare it to others using cupping, then you will never return to it. Kopi-luwak is never used at the world barista championships, where everyone is trying to break each other and surprise with the quality of the beans.In fact, the whole phenomenon is to sell something that no one really needs, and for a lot of money. There are even some super-expensive varieties there – “tru luwak” – which are obtained from wild animals. There is a similar story in Jamaica – with the Blue Mountain variety that grows in the mountains, there is “monkey coffee” in Australia. But I will note again: this is just marketing. ”
Co-owner of Good Enough coffee shop (closed from 20 September)
“It is being bought now for the same reasons as Herbalife in its time.If we talk about taste differences, then they are definitely there. Several years ago I participated in a cap-testing championship, this is when there are eight bases, each of them has three glasses, two of them have the same type of coffee, and the third has a different one, and you need to define it. There I just came across a mine-luwak. For the receptors of a professional, as well as an amateur, it’s just like chewing dung ”.
Founder of the Black coffee cooperative
“Kopi-luwak is no longer the most expensive coffee in the world.The championship passed to the Hacienda la Esmeralda farm, which opened the world to the Geisha arabica variety (the cost of a pound of green beans is $ 100-150). Luwak has been a rare coffee for a long time. The animals ate berries on trees in the forest or on plantations, then it was necessary to collect their excrements, isolate the grains and process them. This required a lot of work, but there were not so many animals themselves. As soon as everyone realized that it was possible to make money on this, the animals began to be put in cages and industrial farms were created.
