MY LIBERICA started off with its own coffee plantation that uses Liberica beans as its main plantation. It holds full control from the seeds in the plantation to a cup of coffee that is served on the table. With our dedication to Liberica Coffee, we hope that our local coffees would have make a difference in the times to come.
Liberica coffee was first discovered in Liberia, West Africa. During the British colonization in Malaysia that happened about 150 years ago, Liberica coffee beans were brought into and introduced in Malaysia.Turns out, Liberica beans grew twice the size of the other species and therefore, Liberica beans are known to be Elephant beans in Malaysia.
Liberica coffee plants could adapt to different growing environments, be it up on a mountain or on the flat land.However its production of crops were low and the managing process is far more complicated, the plant was not favored by the farmers, causing it to reduce and is now even on the verge of extinction.
MY LIBERICA owns a plantation that cultivates about 50 acres (20 hectares) of Liberica coffee plants in Johor, Malaysia. As the plantation is located in the iron ore producing areas, the soil in these areas are more acidic thus very suitable to use for growing the coffee trees.
In order to increase the quality of MY LIBERICA coffee and taking a role in promoting recycling, the residue from processing the coffee beans has been used as organic fertilizer in the plantation itself. As a result, MY LIBERICA has gained its own reputation with the unique planting strategies and the environmental advantages that make it different from other Liberica brands.
