A vibrant coffee, packed with tropical fruit flavors of pineapple, mango and brown sugar; vanilla, dried fruit, distinctly sweet. 

Description

If you haven't yet had an excellent coffee - or any coffee - from the Philippines, start here. Quality coffee from the region had been difficult to come by until recently because 90% of the country's production is Robusta, and most of it is locally consumed. Yet the third wave cafe movement has been growing - they even have a National Barista Champion! - as has their export of quality Arabica beans. 

Our friends in the Philippines have been working alongside growers to refine their coffees and bring them to the world stage. Thanks to a successful Kickstarter campaign, the social entrepreneurs at Kalsada Coffee were were able to raise $15,000 to set up a small wet-mill where a group of 50 families can bring their coffee cherry for centralized processing.

With the new washing station they're able to produce Typica/Bourbon naturals, washed, and honey processed coffees. We featured their Yellow Honey last year. This year it was their elegant washed lot that stood out on the cupping table.
