Cupping Competition Showcases Quality of Ifugao Coffee


Wazzup Pilipinas!

Twenty coffee samples will be rated for their quality in cup and taste in the 1st Coffee Cupping Competition to be held on 16 April 2019 in Asipulo, Ifugao.

The Peace and Equity Foundation, in partnership with Philippine Coffee Board Inc. (PCBI) and Hojap Multi-Purpose Cooperative (HMPC), spearheads this coffee cupping and bean grading competition to boost promotion of the local coffee industry in Asipulo, Ifugao.

The event is in line with Hojap’s coffee productivity program that seeks to increase the income of 400 Asipulo farmers through quality coffee bean production. Coffee farmer-members of HOJAP submitted one kilo of coffee to be subdivided for grading, roasting and sampling.

Each entry received feedback and recommendations from coffee experts from the PCBI based on their aroma, flavor, acidity, body, uniformity, balance, sweetness, and cleanliness.

The grand prize winner will receive PHP 15,000. Second and third placers will also get PHP 10,000 and PHP 7,000, respectively.
The awarding ceremony on April 16 coincides with the town’s Kulpi Ad Asipulo celebration or rice festival. In Ifugao, the kulpi is celebrated after the planting season to ask the gods and spirits for a good harvest.

The PEF and Hojap MPC have been partners in the development of Asipulo farmers,
with PEF investing in farmers’ enterprises to meet the quality and productivity
requirements of a changing global coffee industry.
