Not many of us are aware the we are celebrating the Philippine Coffee Month this October. For 2010, the Philippine Coffee Board has organized a series of activities that will run from October 7-20 to help promote the Philippine coffee industry and raise awareness on issues faced by coffee farmers.
So, what’s in store for the general public? Here’s what you can look forward to:
October 7-20 – Coffee Origins (Coffee sampling and exhibits)

October 18 – 3rd Philippine Coffee Summit
Theme: New Plantings: Our Answer to Coffee Production Chaellenges

You don’t have to be a coffee farmer, miller, roaster, or seller to attend any of these events. The PCB is encouraging weekend farmers and OFWs who have an interest in business to attend these events especially the Coffee Summit. Dr. Andy Mojica, head of the National Research Center on Coffee, says that they are encouraging the public to attend these farming seminars because the country needs more coffee farmers and investors.
If you wish to attend any of these events, or if you have any inquiries, you can contact the Philippine Coffee Board at the following:
