A unique and irreplaceable part of our worldwide coffee heritage, Liberica is an entirely separate species of coffee. Its almond-shaped beans have an exceptional aroma, almost floral and fruity, while its flavor is full and slightly smokey. We guarantee you have never tasted anything like this rare and exotic coffee.
Liberica is a vanishing species of coffee that is only now being brought back from the brink of extinction, and your purchase supports conservation of both the coffee and the forests where it grows.
Urgent update: Liberica is once again in danger of extinction. Many Liberica farms are replacing their pure Liberica trees with shorter, more convenient-to-harvest hybrid coffees. We fear that soon the wild Liberica trees will be the only ones left!
Sometimes we have to get our precious, dwindling supply via airplane. Scarcity and transportation expense have forced us to raise the price of Liberica. This price represents the real, honest cost of this rare bean.
Now, more than ever, your purchase of Liberica is saving the entire species from extinction. Help us protect coffee biodiversity and preserve this irreplaceable part of our world's coffee heritage!
8 ounce roasted coffee, City Roast (Light/Medium).
Just not our thing
I don't want to say this coffee is not good by any means at all. The quality of it is exceptional. It's just not what we enjoy brewed by itself. However we did blend it with some Arabica and Robusto beans and the blend makes a great cup of java! If you are looking to add some smokey and red wine like notes to your coffee then this is the beans for you!
