Most auto-drip coffee machines make your brewed-civet cat coffee acidic and light-bodied. Because ground Kopi Luwak coffee is brewed in a fairly short time in this method, it elevates the coffee acidity. For this reason, auto-drip coffee Luwak tastes more acidic. Especially when compared to coffee from other brewing methods that have longer brewing times.
Unfortunately, this method scores low if you are desiring complex flavors in your Luwak coffee. Most of the time, you get a mild-tasting coffee Luwak when you brew Kopi Luwak coffee with an auto-drip coffee machine. But if you are willing to give an extra round of making flavorful coffee Luwak with an auto-drip coffee machine, you can try a tip from Ospina, A. K. M (2018). Just add more ground coffee Luwak and let it brew a little longer.
The cost of an auto-drip coffee machine might be affordable or costly depending on your preferences. There are countless options for auto-drip coffee machines in both offline and online stores. You can get a travel-sized auto-drip coffee machine starting from $20, while other exclusive selections can reach up to $1,000.
Unfortunately, the auto-drip method is not a perfect fit to brew civet cat coffee. Because it brings less flavor to the final cup of your civet cat coffee. Unless you are willing to use more civet cat coffee beans for a more intense flavor, the auto-drip method is not recommended.
Fill hot water in the coffee pot and let it sit for a few minutes. Make sure the pot used for the auto-drip brewing method is hot.
Weigh out the Kopi Luwak coffee beans.
Grind the Luwak coffee beans to medium ground.
Fill ground civet coffee in the filter.
Add the water to the machine.
Press the pour button.
You’ll end up with a pot full of delicious civet coffee.
