Kalinga Gold Coffee

Organically grown at the ideal altitude of 4,000 to 5,000 feet, Kalinga Gold is a blend of the Arabica bean, known for its heady aroma and intense flavor, the Robusta bean for additional richness, and the Excelsa bean for a twist of complex flavor.

Kalinga Gold coffee was first introduced by Spanish Conquistadores between 1873 and 1881 to the tribes of the Cordillera Mountains in Northern Philippines. The entire crop of organically grown coffee was then shipped to Spain and sold for fabulously high prices, with preciously little trickling back to Manila's ruling class. Only today, more than a century later, is the same coffee available, and in limited quantities!

Kalinga Gold prospered in the Cordillera under the leadership of an Igorot chieftain named Commising. Commising secured his influence and power by defending his people from the head-hunting Busoles of the North. Today, this same coffee is harvested in limited quantities by Commising's descendants -- the indigenous peoples of Kalinga and the Cordillera Mountains.

Kalinga Gold Coffee is available to coffee lovers everywhere from KabayanCentral.com - The World's Filipino Store.
