Throughout Indonesia are many relatively small coffee farms that are run by entrepreneurial farmers responding to the global demand for Civet coffee.
Indonesia’s largest Civet coffee producer is Sumatra which produces wild Civet coffee (from uncaged Civets) as well as farmed Civet coffee (in which the Civets are kept within certain areas).
In the Lampung province in southeast Sumatra a company called Trung Nguyen allows Civets to forage in large courtyards where the coffee cherry of Arabica coffee plants are set out into large courtyards. These Civets are then caged during the night.
