If you are looking for a new taste of coffee, keep an eye out for Saltan Brewed Coffee. This is a new brand from the Philippines, the second to come out from this area, boosting what is known as the Kalinga taste.
The Philippines may be a relatively small player in coffee production but it is coming out with some pretty good tasting beans. The Saltan Brewed Coffee comes from plants that grow along the Saltan river banks in Taga, Pinukpuk, Kalinga province. The blend is a mix of robusta, arabica and exelsa beans. The resulting brew has a clean, unique taste that is much appreciated by many coffee lovers, especially by those from the Middle East who import this coffee.
Coffee is now the top produce of the Kalinga province. Mananig Multi-purpose Cooperative (MMC), the producers of Saltan Brewed Coffee, is now in the process of getting their organic certification from the Organic Certification Center of the Philippines.
