Fresh blend, latte, espresso, mocha, and cappuccino, all beverages begin the same and has something to do with the great red and green berries – the coffee.
Everyone loves coffee but not all know that we are celebrating the Philippine Coffee Month. Back in 1997, former President Fidel V. Ramos declared October as Coffee Month and themed it as Black and White Festival. The Philippine Coffee Board continued to support the local coffee industry with Coffee Break in 2003. Until the year 2008 and 2009 it has been renamed and celebrated as the Coffee Origins.
For this year's celebration, the Philippine Coffee Board and Coffee Origins has brewed series of activities that will highlight the best of Philippine Coffee from October 7 - 20 at Greenbelt 5, Ayala Center. There will be samples of local brew coffee for two weeks from the different participating roasters and merchants. So coffee lovers and the public can taste and appreciate our local products.
Sideways, the Philippine Coffee Board Inc. with Co-Chairman Pacita Juan, Emmanuel Torrejon, and National Research Center on Coffee Head Dr. Andy Mojica has prepared Free Coffee Webinar on How to Put Up a Coffee Shop and Choosing Your Coffee? set on October 9. There are also coffee farming seminars scheduled on Ocotober 14 - 21 respectively and coffee farm tours on the 16th of October.
The coffee farm seminars and tours will cater support, field demonstrations, and awareness about the situation affecting the local coffee industry and the farmers.
Also, the 3rd Philippine Coffee Summit with the theme: New Plantings: Our Answer to the Coffee Challenge, again hosted by the PCB will be held in AIM Conference Center on October 18.
The said conference is a gathering of partners and stakeholders from Benguet down to Sulu dedicated to coffee and to build a unifying set of goals for the Philippine Coffee Industry.
