Liberica (Latin: Coffea liberica) is a species of flowering plant in the family Rubiaceae. It’s plant produces almond-shaped beans which have a strong floral and fruity aroma, while its flavor is full and slightly smoky. It's a much larger plant/tree than other coffee plant species, growing to about 20 meters in height and producing coffee beans that are much larger than other varieties.
Liberica coffee trees have a deep root system, which means they’re able to access water deeper than other coffee plant varieties. Therefore, they can be grown in harsher climates, and even soils that might not be viable for other trees (clay, peat).
Liberica is a species of coffee plant that was first discovered in Liberia which gives it its name.
In the 1890s, Liberica coffee plants were transported and cultivated in other parts of the world due to the coffee leaf rust disease wiping out much of arabica coffee plants. Moreover, Liberica has been described as the world’s rarest type of coffee. It accounts for less than 2% of commercially-produced coffee worldwide.
