A unique and irreplacable 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!
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!

Costa Rica's Dota Tarrazu Region
"Tarrazu", like Champagne, has just been made a restricted term that can only apply to coffees grown in one small mountainous region. The Tarrazu region produces some of the most highly-prized coffee in Costa Rica. It is home to a variety of subspecies of Arabica, which are combined to create an exceptionally well-rounded and rich cup. One particular valley, called Dota Tarrazu, receives a slightly different amount of sun and rain, which results in absolute top-tier beans. Recently a crop from this micro-region, from a subspecies of Arabica called Gesha, was a Cup of Excellence winner and much celebrated. Learn more and browse our Costa Rica Dota Tarrazu coffees here.
