Mountain Maid and Ifugao Coffee

We have  run out of Taylors of Harrogate Rich Italian coffee and I thought the world as I know it was over. 🙂  Luckily I remembered that I have got a few bags of coffee from Baguio, Philippines.

I thought I should try it.

I am glad I did.  I was very pleasantly surprised.  It tasted terrific, full-bodied and rich.  It has the right scale of bitterness.

Just perfect for a cold afternoon break time here in London.

We got the coffee from the Good Shepherd convent, which is just below Mines View in Baguio.

Aside from gorgeous Mountain Maid and Ifugao coffees, the convent/centre brew their own civet coffee, unfortunately for Peter, they had just run out of the coffee.

He was so aggrieved like you won’t believe.  He was so very, very sad that he did not get to drink coffee from beans which have been swallowed and pooped by musang (civet).  What is the world coming to?!!! 🙂

Anyway, the coffees above  are comparable to the best coffees available anywhere in the world.  I should know this as I am a self-confessed coffee aficionado.

I hope the Good Shepherd convent are exporting them or is thinking of doing so.
