VIDEO: Introducing Liberica, a Lesser-Known Coffee Species


We like to talk about our high-quality Arabica coffee, but there are many more coffee species – all with their own unique characteristics and flavour profiles. And so when we took a trip to Coffea Diversa in Costa Rica, we asked them to show us one of the lesser-known ones: Liberica.

Arabica coffee is different to Liberica in many ways – the most noticeable of which is the size. This tree can grow up to 19 m high, with huge leaves and large cherries.
