Product Description

Liberica is the rarest coffee species. It almost became extinct by the 1990's. Now cultivated only in the Philippines and to a lesser extent in Malaysia, people are rediscovering this unique coffee. The fruits grow on trees 30 feet tall, and must be harvested by people climbing ladders. The leaves and the beans are the largest in the world. The beans are not symmetrical, having a distinctive shape in which one half is a little lower than the other. The flavor of Liberica coffee is hard to describe... at first bold and smoky, it ripens in the cup to a mellower profile with rich caramel tones. When ground and brewed it is as aromatic as arabica, yet it is much more stable. It stores well and can be brewed as a drip coffee, boiled in campfire style or as espresso. It adds an exotic note to any blend of beans. Relatively low in caffeine. Direct trade from the producer. It is getting harder to procure Liberica as the world rediscovers it and supply does not keep up with demand. Dubbed "Barako" coffee after the term for the sugar cane workers who enjoyed this coffee in the Batangas region, only 100% Liberica coffee is the traditional Barako coffee. Other euphemisms used by growers who do not use 100% Liberica include "Batangas Blend", etc., but if the coffee is not from this region and is not 100% Liberica, it is not the traditional Philippine Barako coffee.

INCREDIBLY balanced, well rounded flavor with NO acidity and a nice grassiness.

Using a fluid bed roaster, I started with a slightly smaller batch than normal (due to the volumetric increase during roasting), dried the beans for 2.5 minutes on low, then finished on high with fan speed reduced to just maintain fluidity. It roasted similarly to high altitude arabicas with one exception. The size increase came early during the drying process instead of near first crack. I took the roast about 20 seconds into second crack to reach a Full City Plus. I brewed in a french press after letting the beans rest 18 hours. They were VERY gassy (the brew foamed agressively as the beans degassed) and continued to be, even after 4 days of degassing!

Whole roasted bean aroma - mildly nutty with strong caramel tones (surprisingly nice!)
Ground bean aroma - HEAVY dried grass and leaf (not too good)
Brew aroma - slightly milder grass/dry leaf (still not good)
Brew flavor - incredibly well rounded, NO acidity, lightly smoky strong cut grass flavor
(interesting! not off-putting, but not a daily drinker)
Brew flavor w/ milk & sugar - green grass (totally lost the smokiness, curiously enjoyable)

The green grassiness really mellowed out 10-15 minutes after pressing and I grew to really like this cup. This obviously cannot be compared to a high-altitude shade-grown arabica, but I can say that I found it enjoyable and could definitely see it being useful in a blend to mellow out a harsher deeper bean (maybe dry-processed or african or indonesian).

I really like using this in a blend of 20% Burundi Kayanza, 40% Columbian Supremo, and 40% Liberica. The grassiness is 'just right'.

this was a wonderful coffee experience, first time for me. I roasted them just into second crack and let sit and cool in a dark place for a full 24 hours. The next morning as I ground the freshly roasted beans the house was filled with the smell of these coffee beans. Then the first taste.......wow a bit different, taste again many layers of flavor, strong, earthy, complex, then the wonderful finish. I love it. I would highly recommend this coffee bean. One note to sellers, you dont have to charge so much for shipping, come on.

I have been roasting my own coffee at home every week for the past 10 years, including Liberica coffee. This coffee has all the wrong flavors; musty, rancid, bitter etc, without any redeeming flavors. Note that the Liberica i had roasted years ago was extraordinarily good, with a striking natural blueberry flavor. It came from India, not form the Phillipines as this one does.

Could have been fresher, but was ok after roasting.
could see it had been bagged up for awile. ship it fresh from the phillipines during season, it would be better. if it is only seasonal that way, at least it would be fresh.

I roast my own coffee beans for a homemade Kahlua recipe I have. These beans done in a dark roast, were still flavorful and surprisingly mild. There was much less of a bitter- after taste, usually associated with dark roasting the coffee bean. The Kahlua turned out very smooth rich coffee flavor, that was perfect when added to an eggnog or just a bit of cream.

As a coffee, to drink these beans bring a mild aromatic flavor with just a hint of nuttiness to the beverage.

I would certainly use them again.

I use green coffee beans to regulate my sugar. I have severe hypoglycemia and this is nature's miracle for sugar crash.
