Benguet is a region found in the Philippines which sits atop the Cordillera mountain range with an elevation of 1400 – 1700 meters above sea level. It is blessed with natural springs that flow all-year round and is home to vegetable and coffee growers.
Our coffee is processed in two micromills that our growers built in 2015, the washed coffees have an intense vanilla and sweet floral aroma with flavor notes of dried fruit, cacao-nibs, cardamom, nutmeg, and all spice. The natural coffees have a distinct sweetness with notes of strawberries, lime, and a thick syrupy mouthfeel. A mix of typica and bourbon are delivered to the station on a daily basis. This coffee is the fruit of the hard work of 50 families of growers, and it was established through generous funding by startup supplier.
Our premium Filipino coffee is not only excellent in taste but is also socially responsible. The purchase of these special coffee beans helps with the sustainability of the local families in the region. Filipino coffee is very rare as compared to their Southeast Asian neighbors such as Indonesia and Vietnam due to having less mountainous regions however you will notice the aroma and delicious taste of Filipino land through this product.
This rare type of coffee is not found easily in Spain, Europe or anywhere around the world and that is why Filipinan Market is very proud to consider this as one of our “diamonds” and be able to offer this marvelous product to the Spanish people.
