Authentic 100% Liberica coffee! Liberica's almond-shaped beans have an exceptional aroma, almost floral and fruity, while its flavor is full and slightly smokey. It is the rarest production coffee species in the world. This variety grows only in certain Philippines mountain ranges. Support the recovery of this endangered species, recover a lost piece of coffee heritage, and get the purest form of the unique Liberica coffee experience.
We apologize for the price increase, the shipping has risen to $6 a pound in itself. It's very hard to get these beans now... :-( But they are worth it, this is a great new crop!
We're sorry, the current situation in the Philippines (typhoons and covid logistics) are making it almost impossible to bring stock in, and we are currently out of stock. We hope to have more around the middle of December.
Roasting and Blending Liberica
Best flavor profile seems to be at Light-Medium, or City roast level. This crop really shines, with incredible aroma and intense flavor. We were surprised, because normally a lighter roast is missing some elements, but we believe in letting a coffee follow its heart!
Liberica is an amazing coffee for blending. We use 20% Liberica mixed with coffees like Lintong or Estate to really enrich the flavor profile and add exotic notes. It also has a high amount of solids, making great crema in expresso.
It's naturally lower in caffeine, making it a good candidate for caffeine-sensitive coffee fans
I am extremely pleased with the exotic taste of this Liberica coffee. It has become a staples in my coffee lineup. I started ordering from Len's Coffee just over a year ago and have been very impressed from ordering to the final cup. Len provides high quality coffees and outstanding customer service.

The Araku Valley of India
India's coffee tradition goes back 400 years or more, when a variety called Kent was first established in the Southern Hills. Arabicas predominated until the blight of 1870, when growers needed to hybridize to resistant varieties. The resultant strains had genes from Liberica and other unique, resistant species.
