COFFEE ORIGINS 2013 is the biggest coffee tasting experience with over 10 companies providing free coffee samples [all local] and including creamers and sweeteners

Coffee Origins – for the coffee fanatic


Last Sunday after lunch at Greenbelt 1, while on our way to watch a movie at Glorietta 4. My family and I passed by the Coffee Origins at Greenbelt 5. It was actually our mom who wanted to check what the different kiosks had to offer, and we all happily agreed.

I was invited to attend the launch of the event, however due to the bad weather I didn’t bother risking the inconvenience.

Our first stop was the Great Taste kiosk. The average pinoy normally goes for instant coffee. Great taste is already a given in the quality of their coffee. What I liked about their white coffee is that, it is not as sweet compared to Nescafe’s Creamy Latte.

Our second and last stop was the Department of Agriculture kiosk – where they have the expensive coffee [an exotic cat’s poo]. Mom stubbornly took a sip of their coffee as she used to buy [or given as gifts] from the company. I say stubbornly because she is not allowed anymore to drink coffee due to her throat/voice condition. But anyhow, they wanted me to try their Kape Musang. If I remember it correctly, a pack of Kapeng Musang costs P800?

Nothing beats fresh brewed coffee! As for the Musang glad to say that it did not taste like poo. Haha! But real good coffee. Although, I don’t think I would even drink this everyday even if I can afford it. I’d rather prefer the regular coffee beans which they also have.

More coffee products to choose from

I do believe that Coffee Origins is a annual event. So perfect for coffee drinkers who wants to explore locally made coffee. And why not? our country has so much to offer when it comes to food.

Till my next food post!
