A vibrant coffee, packed with tropical fruit flavors of pineapple, mango and brown sugar; vanilla, dried fruit, distinctly sweet.
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.
This option is currently sold out.
