Ark of Taste Coffee 120g – Benguet Arabica


PHP 159.00

This ARABICA variety is planted in the Cordillera range of mountains in the northern part of the Philippines. Benguet is about 1600 meters above sea level and has been cultivating Typica for over 80 years now.

Benguet Arabica is the first variety from the Cordillera to be listed as endangered in the Ark of Taste – a listing of the world’s food that is facing extinction. The variety is endangered because the farmers are not planting new trees nor are they rejuvenating old trees to have more yields. This resistance to change is brought about by culture of not touching what their elders have planted almost 80 years ago.

We need to preserve what remains in the farms and protect it with the help of the community of growers.

Protect our culture. Protect biodiversity.
