Production has increased from 70 kg in 2012 to 150 kg in 2015. 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 distributors. 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 (8800 beans equal one kg of Black Ivory Coffee).
