How to make kopi luwak coffee

Brewing the perfect cup of coffee often depends on the drinker and their own preferences. Making a cup of kopi luwak coffee is the same. There are lots of ways to brew it, but here are some useful tips to get it right.

First, make an exceptional cup of kopi luwak coffee with two tablespoons of ground coffee for every six ounces of water. If you do not have ground beans, grind them to a medium-fine texture. You can adjust the formula based on your own tastes, including adding more coffee grounds if you want a stronger brew.

The ideal water temperature for kopi luwak is like other coffee. Water temperature between 195- and 205-degrees Fahrenheit (around 91 to 96 Celsius) ensures optimal extraction of coffee. If the water is hotter, you lose the quality of the coffee’s flavour. Colder water results in a flat taste.

If you are making coffee using a manual drip or pour over method, prepare your coffee dripper with a filter. Boil water and add enough to cover the grounds in the filter. Stir once or twice and wait about 15 seconds. Then, add water every 10 to 15 seconds in a slow and even spiral for an even extraction of the coffee. Let the coffee rest for about three minutes after you finish pouring water before enjoying your cup of coffee.

If you are using a coffee machine, follow its instructions and use about two tablespoons for every cup of coffee. For a French press, place the ground coffee beans in it and add hot water that you boiled. Stir the ground coffee with a wooden or plastic spoon. Then, wait about four minutes before pushing the plunger down to extract as much flavour as possible.
