LT Coffee Festival to feature firsthand farm experience
by Ofelia C. Empian

Coffee enthusiasts in Benguet and elsewhere will have a firsthand experience of the development of the coffee product from the farm to the table as visits to farms and a processing center will be featured during the 2nd La Trinidad Coffee Festival from Feb. 8 to 10.

Municipal Tourism Action Officer Valred Olsim said the activity would be an added experience for the participants of the coffee festival.

Farms to be visited are Bantay Coffee Farm at Barangay Pico; the village-based processing center and the Benguet State University Coffee Center, both located at Longlong, Puguis. The farm visit is free and open to interested individuals.

However, for the additional experiential tour at the Wangal Coffee Farms with sunset viewing, interested participants will have to shell out for the community guide fee of P200 per person inclusive of a tour shirt.

Interested participants may register at the La Trinidad Municipal Gym on Feb. 7 and 8.

The coffee festival dubbed “Brewing unity through coffee” has a lineup of activities happening at the municipal gym including La Trinidad coffee conference on Feb. 7, which is also the opening program. The results of cupping, barista demo and training and coffee techno forum will be on Feb. 8.

Also, the unlimited coffee at the municipal park is slated on Feb. 9 and 10. The public is also encouraged to bring their mugs during the unlimited coffee at the park.

Around 1,420 individual farmers are into coffee production in the town. These farmers are scattered in barangays Beckel, Shilan, Lubas, Wangal, Puguis, Pico, Alno, Bahong, and Tawang. These areas produce about five tons of coffee beans annually.

Coffee farmers in the municipality produce pure Arabica variety, but with various strains including tipica, which is considered as the older variety as well as the newer kona variety.
