We have run out of Taylors of Harrogate Rich Italian coffee and I thought the world as I know it was over. Luckily I remembered that I have got a few bags of coffee from Baguio, Philippines.
I thought I should try it. I tried the Mountain Maid Coffee.
I am glad I did. I was very pleasantly surprised. It tasted terrific, full-bodied and has the right scale of bitterness.
Just perfect for a cold afternoon break here in London.
We got the coffee from the Good Shepherd convent, which is just below Mines View in Baguio.
Aside from gorgeous Mountain Maid and Ifugao coffees, the convent/centre brew their own civet coffee, unfortunately for Peter, they had just run out of the coffee. He was so aggrieved like you won’t believe. He was so very, very sad that he did not get to drink coffee from beans which have been swallowed and pooped by musang (civet). What is the world coming to?!!! 🙂
Anyway, the coffees above are comparable to the best coffees available here in the market. I hope the Good Shepherd convent are exporting them or is thinking of doing so.
