The Ultimate Coffee Guide

Productivity and Quality

Volume X, Issue 2, 2017

This year we celebrate two milestones―our 15th year as the pioneer coffee organization that is still private sector-led and the 10th year for the National Coffee Summit. And we are still together in the vision to promote Philippine coffee here and around the world.

We also celebrate our partnership with the Coffee Quality Institute (CQI) which helped us raise the bar for quality coffee. We thank you for loyal sponsors such as the Land Bank of the Philippines, Peace and Equity Foundation, the Department of Agriculture, and the Department of Trade and Industry for always supporting our events. We cannot forget the Agricultural Cooperative Development International and Volunteers in Overseas Cooperative Assistance (ACDI/VOCA), our partners for Mindanao Productivity in Agricultural Commerce and Trade (MinPACT) project, who introduced us to many international coffee experts.

We thank the ASEAN Coffee Federation (ACF) for having joined hands with us since 2012, but most of all we thank the coffee-drinking public who has followed us in this journey of making Philippine coffee the newest “toast” in ASEAN member countries, and soon the rest of the world.

This is also our 10th year for this publication, which has reached many stakeholders and coffee enthusiasts as far as Colombia, Mexico, China, Europe and our own coffee corners in Bohol, Sulu and the most unlikely places where you will now find quality Philippine coffee.
