Pomeroon Coffee is the rarest, sweetest and most aromatic coffee known, occupying less than 1% of the World market. Its rarity is due to low yields and thus high production costs, which are of little interests to large commercial companies mass-producing coffee.
- Variety is Caffea Liberica
- Introduced in early 20th Century to replace Caffea Arabica, cultivar Typica
- Over the century grown along the Banks of the Pomeroon River, it has developed its unique characteristics from the tannin-rich soils there
- Unlike the small beans of Asia’s Liberica, Pomeroon coffee beans have evolved to a larger bean similar to the evolution of Typica to the increased-sized bean, Maragogipe, in Brazil.
