From a Coffee Expert

Not me, but Robert Francisco who sent me a link to give readers better information about my blog entry on alamid coffee. Robert was among some friends I consulted before I bought the farm three years back, and he's also hooked me up with farms and people from whom to source quality coffee seedlings.

He's passionate about coffee and definitely walks his talk: he's even written a book about it! Click this to read more about his take on alamid coffee.


  1. We also have shares of those droppings in our area, I have observed them since i was a kid, but i haven't seen a civet cat there yet. We only have few coffee trees now but last year i gathered some of the droppings. However, i just learned that a "dayo" from Samar caught the 'alamid' and ate it with his family. I am so sorry, there might not be any alamid in our area anymore. It has not been so vulnerable with the local people until some lazy migrants get in.

  2. Eeeww, how could alamid taste? Just the thought of it makes my stomach turn. But come to think of it, the posts are about their poop after all, hahahaha...
