All About Civit Cats

A civet /ˈsɪvɪt/ is a small, lithe-bodied, mostly nocturnal mammal native to tropical Asia and Africa, especially the tropical forests. The term civet applies to over a dozen different mammal species. Most of the species diversity is found in southeast Asia. The best-known civet species is the African civet, Civettictis civetta,[1] which historically has been the main species from which was obtained a musky scent used in perfumery. The word civet may also refer to the distinctive musky scent produced by the animals.

How we roast our coffees

We operate our own central roastery from which we distribute right to the shops. This allows you to experience every cup as if you were right at the very farm it originates from. To achieve this, we use a refurbished 1920s Probat coffee roaster.

We know that roasting is something you have to keep on perfecting constantly. Each coffee has requires a different roast to get the aroma and tastes just right. That’s why our experts fine tune the way we roast coffees every day. It’s a constant effort.
