Malaybalay Blend Gourmet Coffee
It is the Philippine's last frontier. Mindanao -- one of the country's biggest islands- contains the last tracts of virgin land, unconquered peaks and lush forests. And in the heart of it is Malaybalay. Malaybalay is an excellent place to grow coffee. Much of it is on a plateau 2,000 feet above sea level. The cold climate, high altitude and unique volcanic soil nurture a coffee crop that is naturally grown. Roasted to perfection, it has no preservatives or additives. We call it Malaybalay Blend.
Savor this brew grown lovingly by the Malaybalay's indigenous people.
Malaybalay Blend is grown carefully by Lumads, which literally means a "people of the Earth." Many of them are forest dwellers and they consider their relationship to the trees and the land as sacred and symbiotic. For centuries, they have preserved forest resources. Highly spiritual, they are mindful of all their acts including coaxing the lands to bear fruit. This "every act is sacred" mindset has yielded a coffee blend that is fresh and as pure as the hands and the land that produce it.
World's rarest and most expensive gourmet coffee.
