Coffee Liberica is a species of coffee that originated in Liberia, West Africa. It is also known as Liberica Coffee or Liberian Coffee which was first found in 1843 in Liberia. Today, most of the liberica coffee trees are grown in Malaysia, Indonesia and Philippines, while some other in West Africa, and India. However, only nearly 1% of Liberica Coffee are traded in coffee trading around the world. Coffee Liberica was brought into Malaysia by Mr. Leonard Wray in the year of 1875 due to our tropical season are ideal for growing. Liberica berries skin are harder and thicker compare to Arabica. Thus, it takes more time to process the coffee beans, and this might be the reason why they have strong smell of aroma and flavour. Today, about 95% of Malaysia’s coffee beans come from liberica plants but did you know it is only 0.01% of the world’s coffee trading ?
