Taal Volcano Crater Lake, Philippines
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.
Our Liberica coffee comes from several mountains in the Philippines. Mt. Halcon is home to the poetic and peace-loving indigenous Mangyan tribes. Liberica in Quezon grows on Mt. Banahaw, considered to be a sacred mountain. Mt. Malarayat, in Lipa, Batangas, is the origin of "barako" coffee, a famous regional specialty in the Philippines. Mt. Malarayat is also one of the few forests of the Philippines that is very near and accessible to the city, and is struggling to hold on to its forested abode.
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.

Liberica and Sumatra Lintong Blend - "Lenberica"
Unique hand-blended combination of Liberica and Sumatra Lintong, created by Len, our owner, and named for him.
Lintong is Arabica coffee grown in the Lintong region of Sumatra. Just south of lush Lake Tahoe, this region combines moisture, high altitude, sunshine and good winds into a perfect growing environment. The premium quality Arabica is made unique by the traditional "curing" process that takes place during a three-stage drying cycle and results in an extremely smooth and flavorful profile. This coffee requires a delicate touch when roasting, so we have established a relationship with a local roaster for the best combination of skill and freshness.
Together, these two coffees complement each other into an extraordinarily aromatic and well-rounded coffee with much enhanced versatility: it can be brewed in any method including espresso, and is wonderful hot or cold.
