Production has increased from 70 kg in 2012 to 300 kg in 2013. Due to limited production and to ensure that Black Ivory Coffee is served properly, we only supply select five star hotels. We do not sell to cafes or though the Internet. Limits to production include the availability of high quality coffee cherries, the appetite of the elephants, the number of beans destroyed through chewing, and the ability of the mahouts and their wives to pick the beans by hand (10,000 beans equal one kg of Black Ivory Coffee).
The following hotels currently serve Black Ivory Coffee in 2013, with more to follow:
