My Liberica Specialty Coffee at Taman Molek, Johor Bahru
Johor coffee culture has roughly three layers. All three layers exist together, giving Johor coffee culture richness and depth.
The first layer is Nanyang coffee, best exemplified by the popular old school Hainanese kopitiams like Kin Wah and Hua Mui. The second layer is the international brands like Starbucks. The third layer is the emerging local brands such as Just Want Café, Monsta Café and My Liberica, just to name a few.
In Johor, some of the local brands are even vertically integrated, meaning they have their own plantations, processing facilities and cafés. Examples are Sai Kee Kopi 434 and My Liberica.
My Liberica is the brainchild and vision of Jason who earned his agricultural degree from Taiwan National University. On returning to Johor, Jason begun turning part of the family's oil palm plantation into a Liberica coffee plantation.
All the coffees sold at My Liberica café come from their own plantation near Bukit Batu in Johor. The ripe Liberica berries are carefully hand picked.
My Liberica's café located in Taman Molek (Johor Bahru) is already a go-to place for the JB's trendy set.
Inside My Liberica café, it is very comfortable with many spaces where customers can enjoy their coffee and cakes quietly.
If you like to watch baristas in action and engage them in coffee talk, you might prefer to perch at the coffee bar.
There are all manners of coffee machines in My Liberica, with this La Marzocco espresso machine taking centre stage.
The La Marzocco machine delivers rich and full bodied espresso coffees with My Liberica's own coffee beans.
The siphon system is the method of choice for making coffee like kopi luwak or civet cat coffee. My Liberica's kopi luwak is made with beans recovered from the droppings of wild civet cats roaming free in My Liberica's vast plantation. (Note: Johor Kaki supports only authentic and ethically harvested civet cat coffee beans.)
The simple filter method is ideal for premium blends like Geisha.
The enthusiastic baristas at My Liberica pull latte art with flare and gusto.
Trendy cold dripped coffee heavily laced with concentrated caffeine is a heady brew.
My Liberica is one of the finest coffee shops in Johor serving top quality coffee in a nice environment.
