coffee-making monks in bukidnon

The only coffee I drink when I am working is Monk's Blend Premium Coffee which comes straight from the hands of God. No, I'm not joking. The coffee got its name because it is a product of the monks at the Monastery of Transfiguration in Bukidnon.

If you are from Mindanao then you probably know why they grow very good coffee. Bukidnon has a cool climate owing to its high altitude. Plus, the coffee factory of the Monks can compare to the high technology factories of other coffee makers as they have a German Probat roasters which is not only multi-capacity but which can produced as much as 5 tons of ground coffee every month.

The Diocese of Stuttgart in Germany and Rottenburg has donated a barn where the coffee is dried and stored. Well, the German's interest in coffee and any coffee-making venture is understandable considering that next to the Americans, they are the largest coffee consumers in the world.

I have tasted the fancy coffee (lots of them) offered by coffee shops here and in other places but I just could not resist this heavenly mix of Arabica and Robusta beans. Simply said, I am addicted to Monk's Blend, no apologies.
