Reputable source for Kopi Luwak?

I'm looking for a source for kopi luwak / civet coffee and there seem to be concerns that there is a lot of "fake" kopi luwak floating around. Can you vouch for a source that would be available by mail-order? I would also be interested in recs for other particularly noteworthy beans that would make an exceptional gift. thanks!

  1. Try Porto Rico Importing Co. They are a venerable NYC coffee company that stocks civet coffee.

      Thanks for the tip - I did order from them and the recipient was thrilled at the unusual gift, so hopefully it is good too!

          If you're in New York, do go to Porto Rico Importing Co. It's in the Village and it's an experience, the aromas, the selection, the flavor...
