Coffee is a popular beverage worldwide with a multitude of nutritional benefits. Diterpene cafestol, one of the major components of coffee, contributes to its beneficial effects through various biological activities such as chemopreventive, antitumorigenic, hepatoprotective, antioxidative and antiinflammatory effects. Studies examined the precise molecular mechanism of the antiinflammatory activity of cafestol in terms of prostaglandin E(2) (PGE(2)) production, a critical factor involved in inflammatory responses.
Most of the important things in the world have been accomplished by people who have kept on trying when there seemed to be no help at all.

Kopie Luwak is harvested from the Asian civet cat which itself found Kopie Luwak palatable. In early morning people gather their droppings in the vast coffee plantations ( as on picture above ). Its steep pricetag has been a major drive behind Vietnamese civet cat farmers to gather their version of Kopie Luwak, yet real connoisseurs prefer the ' wild ' variety of Kopie Luwak - rather than the domestic version.
