Manila Coffee Festival is brewing again after being shelved for 2 years.
Coffee lovers may now get to know coffee on another level. The festival is set to happen in April 29- May 1,2022 4pm-10pm at the historical place where coffee first came to the Philippines through Galleon Trade during the Spanish Colonial Era in Intramuros.
For only P150, attendees will not only enjoy arts and culture, music, food, and local tourism but will also get to taste award-winning coffee beans from Mindanao. Mindanaoan single-origin coffee merchants like Mirabueno from Bukidnon and North Star Upi Coffee from Maguindanao will be showcasing their home-grown coffee beans.
Aside from the Single-Origin Bar, attendees will have access to priority registration of workshops and talks, as well as unique coffee products such as coffee-flavored taho from Likhaya.
Tickets also include a tranvia ride which is a short-distanced Spanish colonial railway system from assigned pick up points in Intramuros to Fort Santiago.
Manila Coffee Festival is an annual coffee lifestyle event and is held to honor the importance of coffee in our national heritage, as well as the country’s massive coffee industry.
“To the organizers, coffee tells a story – from how it is grown, harvested, and roasted, to all the people involved in creating a cup of coffee, to how we enjoy it.”The Smart Local Philippines
Most of the Filipino cannot go a day without coffee, so let us appreciate and support our local coffee businesses, especially our local coffee farmers.
