Cordillera - Organic coffee from Sagada called "Bana's Coffee won a medal and gained international recognition at the third edition of the International Contest of Coffees Roasted in the Countries of Origin organized by the Valorization of Agricultural Products (AVPA), a Paris-based association.
AVPA is non-government, non-profit organization composed mainly of products, coffee industry experts, and taste enthusiasts. Its goal is promoting the value of agricultural products around the world and give recognition to the excellence of producers.

The awarding ceremony took place at the Embassy of Peru in Paris on June 28. Mr. Philippe Juglar, President of AVPA, gave the award to Consul Rapunzel Acop from the Philippine Embassy in Paris, on behalf of Goad Sibayan, Butch Acop, and Rich Watanabe -- the team behind this effort in presenting Bana's Coffee to AVPA.

The winning of Bana's Coffee from Sagada has helped the Philippines establish a reputation of having the best coffee in the world.
Bana's Coffee is run by Goad Sibayan, a coffee farmer and roaster who grows 100% Arabica coffee trees in the town of Sagada.

Bana's Coffee entry into the AVPA is a collaborative effort between Goad and the Coffee Heritage Project (CHP), a non-profit private initiative dedicated to help farmers grow quality-focused coffee.

Sixty coffee entries from 21 countries received various awards from AVPA. The Philippines joined many other coffee producers around the world.

  9. Fake news. Sagada coffee is a myth, a romanticized one propagated in aid of marketing.
