A ONCE-GREAT COFFEE GIANT
Introduced by Spanish friars to the Philippines in the 1740s, Barako coffee was originally planted in the lowlands of Batangas. The area is now locally known for its coffee. Barako coffee was so good, that the Philippines became one of the top four producers of coffee in the world in the 1880s, and the coffee commanded such high and competitive prices for its export. But when the coffee rust affected the Philippines in 1889, the country’s coffee industry collapsed. When coffee demand returned in the 20th century, barako, because of how difficult it is to cultivate, took a back seat to other varieties. Thankfully, recent years have seen a surge in interest in reviving and conserving the barako industry.
