If you have a coffee connoisseur in your relationship or in your circle of friends and if you look for a suitable gift for this person, you might want to give him or her a special coffee. The question is now very probable:
What special coffee varieties are there for giving away?
Here we would like to show you a small list of exceptional, special and delicious coffees from all over the world.
Kauai is one of the Hawaiian Islands and one of the most beautiful places in the world. 80% of the island cannot be reached by car, but only by helicopter. Kauai offers, besides a beautiful nature, the best conditions for good coffee. Above all through the volcano rock, the coffee plants receive special nutrients and also the coffee beans their special taste.
The coffee offers a very special taste - best prepared with a filter machine or the manual preparation by infusion. More information about Kauai Coffee can be found on the official website.
Kona Coffee is grown on the west coast of Big Island Hawaii and belongs to one of the best coffees in the world. The volcanic rocks of the island give the coffee, as well as the Kauai coffee, special nutrients that promote growth. Kona Coffee is available as a blend with a 10% Kona portion, which is not recommended for true coffee lovers. 100% Kona Coffee is indeed very expensive, but tastes also much better.
Now we come to Jamaica and thus to another coffee variety, which is very rare and accordingly also expensive. This coffee is grown on the slopes of the Blue Mountains on Jamaica. The small area benefits from the exceptional climate. The coffee tastes particularly good and is very popular among gourmets.
Here the coffee bean is first eaten by an Asian cat species before processing. It is the civet cat which is located on the Indonesian islands of Java, Sumatra and Sulawesi and likes to eat from red coffee cherries. The excrements of the cat containing the coffee bean are collected by hand and then roasted.
The process is very expensive and this of course affects the price. When buying Kopi Luwak coffee you have to make sure that the supplier of the coffee is selected correctly. Unfortunately, the cats are badly treated by some manufacturers and these are deliberately stuffed with coffee cherries, only so that the production of the Kopi Luwak coffee shop is enough. Here you should really pay attention to fair trade or bio.
Since 1890 there is the New Orleans French Market Coffee and the taste is really special. A few details about the history can be found on the official website here.
You have now got to know five different rare and some very expensive coffee varieties, which are ideal as a gift for a coffee expert. Which one did you like best? Let us know in the comments!
