Kalsada Coffee is a social enterprise that champions Filipino coffee producers and their dedicated efforts to bring quality coffee to the specialty market. Thanks to the generosity of Kickstarter supporters, friends, and family in and out of the coffee industry, Kalsada established their first community mill in Sitio Belis, located in Benguet. Home to both vegetable farmers and growers, this region has been cultivating coffee since the end of WWII. However, individual farmers were processing coffees in different ways, using practices that were either passed on from their predecessors or other farmers who have joined trainings outside the community. The creation of the processing mill has allowed 50 families of farmers to train together, elevate their standards, and produce coffees that are nothing short of delicious.

With delicate notes of kalamansi (Philippine lime) and latik (toasted coconut milk curd used as a topping in Filipino desserts), Sitio Belis makes a well-rounded cup of coffee that is excitably strange yet comforting.
