Ms. Jean Abear shared that they have been in coffee farming for around 25 years. It is the primary source of income.
When asked if coffee farming has a bright future in the Philippines, Ms. Jean wrote – ” Yes, there is a bright future for our coffee industry if the government or Department of Agriculture will provide funding for us farmers to help us improve the quality of our coffee. Filipino consumers should learn how to patronize our local products”.
“Yes po may magandang future po ang coffee industry ng bansa kung ang pamahalaan or ang DA ay magbibigay ng pondo para dito upang ma-improve, at dapat ang kapwa Pilipino matutong mag-patronize sa sariling produkto.-Jean Abear
They have been also joining coffee quality competitions. In 2017, a Canadian company submitted their beans for Global Specialty Coffee Expo and their Robusta coffee was graded 83.
