Homegrown Coffee Honors Filipino Coffee and Culture this Holiday Season

This holiday season, Bo's Coffee partners with Anthill Fabric Gallery, a social and cultural enterprise, to provide coffee lovers with a delightful Christmas offering that carries Filipino pride.

Last Wednesday, we were invited by Anya Lim of Anthill Fabric Gallery over coffee to talk about the importance of supporting Filipino homegrown products towards change and sustainability. Together with Bo's Coffee CEO Steve Benitez, they proudly announced their partnership and launched its limited edition Coffee Origins Patch Tumblers, a perfect gift that blends Filipino culture and talent by showcasing the artistry of local weavers from indigenous communities all over the country.

These beautiful tumblers feature a variety of fabrics from Sagada, Benguet, Mt. Matutum, Mt. Kitanglad, and Mt. Apo where Bo's Coffee sources its 100% Arabica beans. It has been said that growing coffee in highlands, like the places mentioned above, brings out its rich flavour. Hoping to have coffee grown locally here in Cebu, in Mantalungon perhaps?

The tumblers feature fabrics weaved by the indigenous and rural communities around the Philippines. These include Paracelis, Bontoc, Kinan-ew, and Abra patterns representing the Cordillera regions of Sagada and Benguet. Topped off with the Abaca Pinanggabol made of abaca/hemp and woven by the Draghuyan-Bukidnon tribe form Mt. Kitanglad adds an extra colorful twist to the entire design. And of course to link it to the origins of Mt. Apo and Mt. Matutum, it is also added with the famous T'nalak created by the dream weavers of South Cotabato.

To avail of the tumblers, just purchase a minimum of P250 at any Bo's Coffee outlets and you'll  be given a Christmas Cheers Card. Collect 12 stickers and you'll get your very own Coffee Origins Patch Tumbler absolutely free! But if you want to get right away and has only 4-8 stickers, you may top up with the corresponding cash amount. Everyone has until January 15, 2014 to collect your stickers and has until March 16, 2014 to redeem your limited edition tumblers. Take a selfie with your tumbler and don't forget to hashtag #BosCoffeeChristmas to be engaged in supporting Filipino pride.

"The launch of our tumblers and our partnership with Anthill Fabric Gallery reflects our pride in homegrown talent and our vision of positively impacting people's lives" 
- Steve Benitez, CEO Bo's Coffee
