We are proud to bring in our first washed coffee from the Philippines, courtesy of Kalsada – a social enterprise that is working hard to champion Philippine specialty coffee. It provides support to Filipino coffee producers and their dedicated efforts to bring quality coffee to market. Working in partnership with local communities, Kalsada invests in machinery and equipment to elevate coffee quality and pays farmers over $1 per pound more than Fair Trade.

Belis sits atop the Cordillera mountain range with an elevation of 1400 – 1700 masl in Atok, Benguet province on the largest island of Luzon. It is blessed with natural springs that flow all-year round and is home to vegetable and coffee growers.  Through a Kickstarter campaign, Kalsada established its first community mill in Belis, where a group of 50 families can bring their coffee cherry for centralised processing.
