Buy Our Coffee

 CGN has been promoting agroforestry Arabica coffee production in the Cordillera as a part of its reforestation projects. CGN also conducts seminars/workshops on coffee maintenance and processing to upgrade the quality of coffee produced in the region. By purchasing our coffee, you can support the coffee farmers in our partner communities in improving their livelihood and ecological sustainability. If you are interested in purchasing the green beans or roasted coffee beans, visit our Cafe Yagam to taste our quality cup of coffee.
