Lipa, Batangas, home of single-origin dairy, Pinkie’s Farm, is also home to the famous Batangueño Barako coffee.
This coffee milk is made of pasteurized milk, taken fresh from grass-fed cows. A little sugar is added to temper the Barako coffee mixed into it.
The result is a rich, creamy, incredible drink that you’ll crave all the time.
When we tell you that you can finish a whole glass bottle on its own, we mean it! Have a glass with your breakfast, or whenever you want an iced coffee, but don’t want the full force of caffeine.
Or you can make your own coffee milk tea with it! Just boil some sago until chewy, prepare half a cup of black tea, and add both into your glass of Pinkie’s Farm Coffee Milk. Add some ice, and voila—an easy and delicious treat to make!
Barako coffee is most commonly found in Batangas and Cavite. Many Filipino coffee drinkers prefer it to other coffee beans, citing its distinct taste.
The name comes from the Tagalog word, “barako,” which means “stud,” which comes from the Spanish word, “varacco,” which means “wild boar.”
The word “barako” is associated with masculinity and machismo in Philippine culture, and connotes a certain strength which people equate with the coffee, which has a very strong flavor.
This milk is all-natural, and contains no preservatives. It must be placed in the refrigerator immediately upon receipt, as heat could accelerate spoilage. It will last 7 days, unopened. But once opened, must be consumed within 2 days.
