Share The Story of Indigenous Farmers

Our Mission

In the Philippines, coffee culture did not catch on until the beginning of the millennium, when cafes started sprouting like crazy. There was a sudden trend of people hanging out in coffee shops. Pinoys were then getting their caffeine fixes in big chains and foregoing their usual instant coffee at home.

Little did Filipinos know that in the Philippine highlands, there’s been a coffee-growing industry all along. In fact, our country used to export coffee, but with the lack of funding and financial support, coffee production declined and up to now, we have to rely on private initiatives to spur the development of coffee farming, harvesting, and processing in backyard farms.

Our mission is to elevate Philippine coffee to specialty level and expand their market for sustainably sourced coffee.

We are here to share the story of our indigenous farmers and hope that this new appreciation would translate to a better livelihood for Philippine coffee growers.
