An early and extensive study on coffea liberica by renowned French official and author, Mr. V. Boutilly.
Extremely scarce work
"Coffea liberica (or Liberian coffee) is a species of flowering plant in the Rubiaceae family. It is a coffee that is native to western and central Africa from Liberia to Uganda and Angola. It is also naturalized in the Seychelles, French Polynesia, Central America, the West Indies, Venezuela, Colombia and Brazil. This coffee was brought to Indonesia to replace the arabica trees killed by the coffee rust disease at the end of the 19th century. It is still found in parts of Central and East Java today. The Coffea liberica tree grows up to 20 metres in height, producing larger fruits than those found on Coffea arabica trees."
