Online Coffee Shops Where You Can Get Local Beans

The Philippines’ varied soil conditions and range of climates make the country suitable for growing different commercially-viable coffee varieties. According to the Philippine Coffee Board Inc. (PCBI), the country is one of the few that produces Arabica, Excelsa, Liberica or Barako, and Robusta.

Celebrate the rich coffee heritage of the Philippines, whether you’re a coffeeholic or still a newbie to the coffee habit, and help the local coffee industry in the process. The following are some online shops where you can get your Philippine coffee fix.
