Kopi Luwak Coffee Tasting
January 14th and 15th
3003 Montebello Terrace
RARE DELIGHTS FROM the SUMATRAN JUNGLE! a treasured delicacy virtually unknown to the western palate.
BEHOLD! The amazing symbiosis between the Asian Palm Civet and Arabica Coffee Beans. This nocturnal jungle denizen ingests the ripest coffee cherries. Its irreproducible digestive system contains proteolytic enzymes which strip the beans of acid and bitterness yet maintains their caffeinated potency. Found only in the wilds of the Indonesian rain forest, these beans are gently brushed clean and meticulously cured. Once in the hands of our master roasters, these scarce and exquisite jewels are caramelized to perfection.
“After I overcame my initial reticence of the rather unique process, I was rewarded with one of the finest cups of coffee I have ever had the pleasure of tasting,” Says Mr. Thomas Rhodes proprietor of Zeke’s Coffee. “The flavor is incredibly smooth, with hints of nuts and delicate earthy tones. It is a singular coffee experience, unlike any other.” The Kopi Luwak is prized throughout for its incredible flavor, low acidity and its ease on the stomach. It is one of the rarest and most expensive coffees in the world.
Zeke’s Coffee is a locally owned, award winning small batch coffee roaster. We roast and blend a variety of coffees from all over the world. Our coffees are roasted to order. Small batch roasting is more labor intensive but guarantees freshness and greater attention to each pound roasted. Zeke’s has been roasting coffee since 2005 in Northeast Baltimore’s Lauraville neighborhood.
