Liberica Coffee

Liberica Coffee House is a nice cozy place for having a cup of coffee, brewed from coffee beans that planted in Indonesia known as Liberian coffee or coffea liberica. 

Interested to understand more Liberica coffee? Here's the information that I gathered. The Liberian coffee beans originally found in Liberia - West Africa then brought to Indonesia during the late 19th century to replace the Arabica trees killed by the coffee rust disease. The Liberian coffee trees are also grown in Malaysia and the Philippines. Even though, most of the coffee beans in these 3 countries come from the Liberica plants but only 1% of Liberica coffee are traded in the coffee trading around the world.

The Liberian coffee beans can be harvested all year long. The berries' size is the largest compared to the other coffee species and has harder skin. It takes more time to process and that might be the reason why it has strong aroma and flavor.

According to an expert, Liberica coffee has a pungent and strong aroma of nuts, cedar and hickory. The after taste is like dark chocolate flavor.

The Liberica's coffee arts.

Hmmm... not sure what the Barista was trying to create. The left one kinda looks like an elephant with  two trunks and the right looks like a heart shape with a smiley face.

Classic Hazelnut Latte (Regular size) - Rp. 36.000 

Crème Brûlée - Rp. 39.000
