    Probably surprising question...Any feedback about coffee from Guyana? Any input will be appreciated.

    Everything I saw online after a quick search says they aren't producing/exporting coffee in recent years.

    What is your experience, and what generates your question?

    Hello Zoisa,

    Welcome to the Coffee Forums website.

    Are you doing research on coffee from different regions?

    I'm wondering, because in another thread you asked: "What is going on with Haitian coffee, which suppose to be good sometime ago? Dominican Republic? Trinidad?" Are you looking for something in particular?

    Hello, I am working on a small , my privately sponsored research about a history, social and economical impact (upward and downward) coffee plantations and coffee manufacturing in Caribbean, West Indies. That is why I am asking all the questions. I don't claim to have any expertise , but I have a lot of fascination (I hope..) and profound admiration for people who grown coffee which is my favorite beverage. I hope, it is still a lot to discover and say about coffee.

    I have come to actually find out how rare and amazing Guyana Coffee actually is. It's coffee estates are in the Pomeroon, you need to get to it by boat up the Pomeroon River. The coffee is not Arabica but something called Liberica, that seems to be the rarest coffee in the world. I tasted the coffee in Guyana it was the best coffee I ever tasted, but roasted a little different. A company in Toronto, Canada is now importing and making Guyana Coffee available to Canada and the USA. Here is there website for further information

    Hope this helps!

    I like to now consider myself as an expert on Guyana Coffee as I was born there and just realized they produce coffee. There is actually a deep rooted history about Guyana and coffee that dates back to the Dutch settlers. I'm not just saying this because I was born there, but the coffee from Guyana is the best tasting in the world, again, just my opinion. You are correct they have not been exporting in years, but I found a company in Canada that is now importing their called Guyana Rainforest Coffee and I already have my order in. https://www.guyanacoffee.ca

    Here is the coffee family tree....and Liberica is the least common. Rarest is a confusing term, it somehow conjures up the impression of superior quality...which may or may not be general consensus. Perhaps it is rare because it is has a lower yield, or maybe is too susceptible to different fungus or pests. How it compares to Arabica would be an interesting study. I'm somewhat intruigued...

    I agree rare/less common does not necessarily mean superior, but in this case it does. The bag I got from the company listed below is very interesting. They have a blend that was excellent, simply amazing, again my opinion. I wanted to try the 100% Liberica and forked up the 49.00 for the bag, it's understandable due to the very low yield and the fact that Liberica cherries are much more difficult to harvest/process than Arabica cherries. I believe only 10% is recovered for use. Anyways, I was advised that the 100% Liberica darker roast can only be drank black with sugar if desired, supposedly milk ruins the integrity and taste quality and it was true. The black Liberica coffee tasted like a fine scotch, best tasting coffee I ever had. Check out the site if you want to order one
