AMADEO | Coffea excelsa or Coffea liberica var. dewevrei | Dark Roast
100% Pure Excelsa a.k.a. PREMIUM BARAKO
Due to their similarity in taste, Excelsa coffee is often confused as Liberica or Robusta. Our Excelsa, however, has a distinct sweet and fruity flavor that is somewhat like jackfruit it has a woody taste as well, and is generally a little bitter. Its aroma is more prominent than its taste. It is commonly cultivated in the mountains of Cavite and Batangas region. Excelsa enhances the middle and back palate and lingering finish of the coffee, giving the cup more substance and power.
Recently, Excelsa was re-classified as a variety of Liberica. However, even though the plants may be taxonomically similar, the actual coffee is so dramatically different that we still think of them as entirely separate species. It accounts for about 7% of world coffee production.
