Cut down, not stop.
Now I am no snob when it comes to coffee. As much as I love products like Starbucks, I also fully support our very own homegrown coffee, especially the ones from Benguet and Sagada. After all, we Filipinos do love our coffee as well and the most expensive one actually comes from our land.
I had the chance to try 3 coffee beans from Benguet namely Sagada Medium, Anne Bean Ground, and Arabica Medium Roast. What I liked about all 3 is the moment I smelled them, I felt joy and contentment. The smell of the coffee beans were smooth and strong but not overly strong.
I tried all 3 black and then all 3 iced and among the 3, I loved Sagada Medium the most. The aroma was very smooth; something that I could smell until it was not hot enough to scald me. The Sagada Medium was also mild in taste. I rarely drink my coffee black but with this one, I had no problems because it wasn't too acidic or strong. Made from pure 100% highland Arabica beans grown from the highlands of Cordillera Regions, Sagada Medium is medially roasted to retain somehow the acidity in the beverage.
The Arabica was my 2nd favorite of the 3. I prefer this one Iced and with a lot of milk. It's absolutely perfect because the coffee is stronger so even when doused with a lot of milk, it holds its own. Superior grade mountain coffee, medially roasted created with 100% Arabica coffee beans of the North Luzon Philippines and carefully roasted to ensure an excellent body with low acidity, providing a full flavored, yet smooth finish.
The Anne Bean Ground was my least favorite but it does not mean that it is not good. For people who can't really hold their coffee, this one is the best. It is the smoothest and the mildest. I'd recommend this for people who like coffee but can't take it occasionally. Again, this is just my opinion and since I am addicted to coffee, my taste may be more strong than that of others. This is a special combination of Robusta and Arabica. Normally, Robusta would have a burnt taste but the combination of the two changed the dynamic. The Northern Taste's very own 50% Arabica Med and 50% Robusta blend, combination of sweet and strong flavor of the mixed beans.
The Northern Taste Coffee Company is the number one retailer of these coffee beans in Benguet. What I liked most about them is after ordering, they deliver freshly roasted coffee the very next day. For someone who depends on coffee to work and stay focus, this is very important.

I am a coffee snob, love a good cup of espresso. I add a tsp of coconut oil or butter to help cut the acidity!ReplyDelete
I love coffee so I really enjoyed reading this. It looks divine!ReplyDelete
I used to be a coffee fiend, but after having my gallbladder removed the acid is just too much for me. I have recently found some low acid varieties that are pretty good.ReplyDelete
I'm a coffee lover too and tend to prefer local brands over Starbucks. I'd like to try these since I've never had Filipino coffee.ReplyDelete

I am such a coffee snob and won't drink Starbucks anymore, I love local and home grown for the community support and taste.ReplyDelete
I'm not really a coffee snob, but I do prefer our local shop over Starbucks. These look good! I don't own a coffee pot, so I just use the Folger's bags that look like tea bags. It's instant coffee without the instant taste.ReplyDelete
I would be really interested to try these coffee variety from Sagada. Checking their sites now on how I can order! :DReplyDelete
