Barako coffee is the Philippine term for coffee produced in the provinces of Batangas and Cavite.
This Philippine coffee is of the Liberica variety.
Liberica is rare and exotic, grown only in 3 countries out of about 70 coffee producing countries in the world.
The first Barako tree was a cutting from Brazil planted in the 1800s in Barangay Pinagtung-Ulan, Batangas by the Macasaet family.
Barako coffee has strong taste, flavor, and has a distinctively pungent aroma.
This is the classic taste of the Philippine Islands.
