Kopi Luwak Cigars, makers of a coffee and vanilla infused cigar capturing the essence of Kopi Luwak coffee will be returning to the market. Earlier this year, a disruption in the supply chain had taken the cigar off the market. The company has confirmed the cigar is now returning and its taking orders from retailers for it.
Kopi Luwak is not a coffee varietal, but actually a type of process that removes tannins and bitterness often found in coffee beans. The process is often applied to Indonesian coffee varietals.
The cigar is produced at Tabacalera Palma in the Dominican Republic. It will be available in the same blend, in two box-pressed sizes. The cigar was launched in 2009 and was originally part of the Oliveros Cigars’ family, the company that eventually became Boutique Blends.
