Wild Civet Coffee Produced by Arengga Company
Coffee Alamid is the name of the beans produced by the Philippines company Arengga which does not cage any Civets and produces only wild Civet coffee which allows the Civets to choose just the ripest and sweetest coffee cherry.
Coffee Alamid includes coffee that have been gathered from the Philippines’ high-altitude forest. Natives living in the forest gather the droppings from the forest floor very early in the morning. In one good morning of gathering one person may accumulate about one kilogram of bean-laden droppings from the Civets.
Arengga is typically given a medium roast before being vacuum-sealed in a one hundred gram bottle. This Civet coffee is known for its fruity and floral tones and mildly earthy flavor as well as a distinct aroma.
