What was  background ?
Stimulated by my need of fund to help poor farmers of coffee as well as to share the best, most tasty and healthy coffee which I always drink, then I sell coffee.

Most of the profit will be used to increase welfare (income) of coffee farmers through creative coffee value chain program by implementing pro-environmental and sustainable quality and quantity of coffee production system.  The activities will be in form of empowerment, training, field school, and facilitating.  In due time (in 2-3 years), the program will stimulate the coffee growers of a village to establish cooperative which builds the hulling and roasting facilities.  This will increase their income higher than ever.  Goldenways Coffee will be the buyer of these green beans as well as roasted beans.  Direct beneficieries will be 9,500 coffee farmers.

I myself roast green coffee soonest after customers pay for the coffee, so that my roasted and ground coffee is always fresh.   I buy parchment and green bean from coffee farmers as well as coffee processors who has hulling maschine which produces green bean from parchments.  This coffee processor buy parchment from farmers.  Before I buy the green bean, I test first the samples by using Cupping Method.  I then buy if the sample passes the test.  After payment,  the processors send the grean bean.  Then, I dry the green bean under sunlight, select the best green bean, and test it again by using Cupping Method.  Only those beans which pass the Cupping will be sold to customers.

What is Civet Coffee?
You must have ever heard  Luwak Coffee or Civet Coffee or Kopi Luwak.   You also must have  ever drunk it, otherwise try to drink it. What is Kopi Luwak?  Kopi Luwak is Indonesian word.  Translation is Luwak Coffee or Civet Coffee.  How is it produced?  Animal called civet (Paradoxurus hermaphrodites) eat the red coffee fruits for fleshy part of fruit (mesocarp), and then swallow it.  In the civet stomach, enzyme penetrate the coffee bean in order to make peptide shorter and to free amino acids.  The shape of coffee bean is maintened. The coffee beans come out the civet stomach in form of compact aggregation, not in each bean separately.  These aggregate  will then be gathered by people, washed, dried under sunligt,  hulled, roasted and made in form of powder (ground coffee).

PEABERRY Civet Coffee is peaberry that produced by civet (luwak). Peaberry is very special not only because it was produced rarely at coffee plant but also because it has been selected carefully.  Normally, one cherry develops two halves bean which form are flat. However, sometimes one cherry develops only one bean which is oval or pea-shaped. This is called Peaberry. From my experience, only around 4% of all beans harvested are Peaberry (Caracole). Worker has to select peaberries carefully from lots of civet coffee bean. It makes peaberry civet has optimal quality. In roasting, peaberry has more chance to receive optimal roast because it rolls on roasting chamber.  In flavor and taste, does peaberry civet coffee has its own interesting attributes? My answer : Yes. You need to drink it, and find the answer.


How do I provide my civet coffee?
I buy the dried natural wild civet feces aggregate (Natural Wild Civet Coffee) containing parchment of  Arabica coffee from coffee farmers in the mountains (elevation 1000 to 2300 m above sea level) in the province of North Sumatra.  By purchasing the aggregate, I can confirm that I receive  a 100%  pure civet coffee. Then I leave them to dry in the sun light on top of the aluminum plate. Once dry, then I wash it off with clean water to obtain parchment. Then I leave these parchment to dry in the sun light on top of the aluminum plate. Once dried, the parchment is then peeled manually to obtain green beans. The green beans are then washed to clean the seeds and to remove the husks. Clean green beans are then dried in the sun on top of the aluminium plate to obtain 12-14% moisture content. Next step, I do the Coffee Taste Test (Cupping Test) at my Coffee Taste Test Laboratory. Only the Kopi Luwak which is passed the Cupping Test will be sold  to the buyer. Seen that the process is very long. Need to be notified that the yield of dried feces just 10-20%, meaning that 10 kg of dried feces gained 1-2 kg of green beans.
