October is Coffee Month: Coffee Origins 2013

I am a coffee drinker. I drink coffee more often than beer. I drink 4 cups a day max. Last year, not only I got to try out samples of coffee but I also learn about the advocacy of the event. To promote and spread awareness of the local coffee industry. Glorietta 5 has been hosting this yearly.
Sponsored by the industry’s ardent supporters like URC for Great taste Coffee, Cream-All non-dairy creamer, Suchero coconut sugar, Aquabest purified water and many roasting companies and local governments like Cavite, national agencies like Dept.of Trade and Industry- Kalinga, DA-AMAS, ARMM  and other non-profits, it will run from October 10-22, 2013.
October 19 is a date to mark for Coffee 101 seminars at Enderun in Taguig City, and October 23 is the 6th National Coffee Summit at the Landbank Plaza, Malate, Manila.
Those wanting to get into coffee or simply are coffee aficionados should not miss these events. The Philippine Coffee Board Inc. (PCBI) has been doing this show for over 10 years now and this is known to be the biggest coffee celebration in the country.
