You’ll never believe what makes this coffee taste so good (CONTEST)


Think about the richest, most flavourful coffee you’ve ever tasted.

Now get ready to forget all about it, because this new coffee engineered by a local Victoria entrepreneur is about to blow your tastebuds!

Java enthusiast Eugene Parks set about inventing his own caffeine fix after a taste of the most expensive coffee in the world, and we think his version is so much better.

Eugene’s coffee vs the original civet coffee

At approximately $200 per pound, the original civet coffee is an international delicacy made with coffee beans that have been semi-digested and pooped out by the Asian palm civet.

(Yeah, we think that’s pretty gross too.)

Civet coffee also has a mossy, mushroom-like aftertaste that often overpowers its rich flavours. Plus the manufacturing process for civet coffee has been laced with animal cruelty allegations.

Asian Palm Civet
Asian Palm Civets are small cat-like mammals. Their populations have recently been threatened by increases in capture for coffee production.

So after over a thousand tries, Eugene Parks managed to figure out a coffee bean fermentation process that is not semi-digested by an animal (so it’s also cruelty-free), and retains the original flavour of the coffee bean.

The result? A smooth, dark chocolate-y drink with hints of citrus and that signature coffee smell that will excite all of your senses.
