Black Ivory Coffee: Single Packet
One single package of Black Ivory Coffee. For first-timers who are curious to try the world's rarest coffee naturally refined by elephants. We are confident you will come back for more!
Black Ivory Coffee is the world's rarest and most expensive coffee. Taking 10 years to develop in three countries, the finest Thai Arabica coffee cherries have been naturally refined by elephants. Black Ivory Coffee is the sole producer of this artisanal process.
Allocation is primarily reserved for top five star hotels, but due to The Elephant Story's special relationship with The Golden Triangle Asian Elephant Foundation (GTAEF), where Black Ivory Coffee is produced, The Elephant Story is the exclusive provider of Black Ivory Coffee in the Western Hemisphere.
Why Black Ivory Coffee is unique:
Ten years in the making, Black Ivory Coffee is created through a process whereby coffee beans are naturally refined by Thai elephants at the Golden Elephant Triangle Foundation www.helpingelephants.org in Chiang Saen, northern Thailand. It begins with selecting the best Thai Arabica beans that have been picked from an altitude as high as 1500 meters. Once deposited by the elephants, the individual beans are hand-picked by the Mahouts and their wives and then sun-dried and roasted. Approximately 10,000 beans are picked for each kilogram of roasted coffee; thus, 33 kilograms of coffee cherries are required to produce just one kilogram of Black Ivory Coffee.
Black Ivory Coffee contributes 8% of their sales to help fund a specialist elephant veterinarian to provide free care to all the elephants of Thailand through the Golden Triangle Asian Elephant Foundation. Additional funds are also used to purchase medicine as well as to build a new laboratory.
Production of Black Ivory Coffee also provides valuable income generation for the wives of the mahouts to help cover health expenses, school fees, food, and clothing.
