Though I'm trying not to drink coffee, because it inhibits iron absorption, which is not good for my iron deficiency problem, I think sipping half a cup every morning is not that bad ;p
I bought these coffees together with my HumanNature goodies, the last time we went in their main branch.
They costs Php295 each but because I have discounts I only got them for less Php250 if i remember.
They come with really great packaging which is nice when you're giving them out as gifts.
Cafe De Sug
I loved the quirky notes on their packaging.
"Mulat Magdamag" - :)
We were expecting it to taste bold and strong but, compared to Folgers, it was not.
I'm thinking maybe we should brew it longer but I don't know how to do it in a drip coffee maker. Maybe boiling it with water and then filter the coffee beans afterwards is worth a try.
"Café de Sug is a social enterprise founded by Xilca Alvarez with the vision of providing a sustainable means of livelihood for farmers in Sulu. They hope to bring a radical change in our perception of Sulu, while uplifting young minds from the trauma of war, one cup at a time."
We tried the Sierra Madre Organika Blend. It is more powderized/ground compared to Cafe De Sug.
It is brown in color when brewed. I think I like this better bec it taste stronger than Cafe de Sug.
I love the simplicity, eco-look of the packaging

It feels good to wake up in the morning with coffee aroma filling up the room and at the same time helping the farmers community (^_^)
