About Filipino Coffee
The Philippines have had a rich history in the coffee industry dating back to 1740. With Coffee being the second largest traded commodity behind oil in the world, the Philippines has gone from a top producer in the late 1800s to a minor player in the market.
1980 – The Philippines joined the International Coffee Organization (ICO).
2002 – The Census data showed that there were 276,000 coffee farms with 79.4 million trees.
2011 – The data showed a shift away from coffee to high yield crops that were more profitable. In Zamboanga region farmers moved to rubber. The Department of Agriculture stated that Arabica made up 21% (500-1000kg/ha) and Robusta made up 70% (1200kg/ha) of coffee production. The Liberica (500kg/ha) and Excelsa (1000kg/ha) rounded out the rest of the production.
2013 – The Mindanao Coffee Producers Congress was held.
2016 – The creation of a Coffee Industry Roadmap
2017 – The Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) drafted a proposal for the creation of a Philippine Coffee Council under an Executive Order.
