🐘 IN HONOUR OF THOSE WHO WORK WITH ELEPHANTS - To honour the amazing work our Mahouts do in rearing and caring for our elephants, we have created a special Mahout's Blend. With their input and countless trials, we have created the perfect blend of refined and non-refined coffee beans into a balanced, exquisite new blend of Black Ivory Coffee.
🐘 DISTINCTIVE YET MORE AFFORDABLE - The roasting team created a special roast that enhances all of these great flavors so you can enjoy the decadence of Black Ivory Coffee but at a lower price. The most expensive coffee in the world just got a little more affordable with this special blend inspired by Mahouts, their rich heritage and the roles they play in the lives of our elephants. You will still find an extraordinary amount of work that goes into creating each gram of this special blend
🐘 Some say Black Ivory Coffee is like civet coffee or kopi luwak and yes these beans are ingested, fermented and extracted from animals. However, the major differences are that our elephants are treated with the utmost care. They have full-time care-givers and treats like daily baths, playtime and of course those luscious coffee cherries. Elephants are herbivores so, the stomach enzymes and the fermentation process is slower giving more time for the flavors of the sweet cherry skins and pulp to mix with the coffee bean. This gives the coffee its smooth, chocolatey and sweeter taste. No bitter burnt aftertaste associated with coffees like Lavazza.
🐘 There are complex tastes of chocolate, fig, spices, lime and earth tones that you will pick out with each sip. It's aroma is chocolate and floral. Above all, we are a social enterprise and consider the welfare of the elephants, the Mahouts and conservation of their habitat as critical in the making of our unique coffee.
