Manila Coffee Festival comes back bigger and sweeter

Great coffee is on its way to Newport World Resorts. From The Coffee Heritage Project, the much-anticipated Manila Coffee Festival is slated to start brewing from March 15 to 17 at the MGBx Convention Hall, Marriott Manila.

For its sixth edition, beyond celebrating the country’s diverse coffee culture, the annual lifestyle coffee event is branching out to the bean’s sweet partner: cacao.

The festival’s “Cacao Alley” features locally-processed single-origin cacao; authentic chocolates from Sarangani, Cotabato, Batangas, and the Maranaws; and sustainable products using the popular bonbon.

Meanwhile, the staple of Manila Coffee Festival, “The Single Origin Bar,” returns once again to champion even more Filipino coffee farmers featuring single-origin coffees for festival goers to taste and savor.

The signature affair adds 10 new sources to its already impressive roster, where each cup offers a taste of each source’s unique heritage alongside cultural performances by the communities that grow them.
