In tagalog – the language of the Philippines – the word “barako” officially refers to a type of wild boar. Unofficially however it describes anything and everything macho. This coffee is incredibly difficult to harvest and requires a treacherous journey to be made to collect it.
The men who dare to venture out for this coffee could themselves be described as “barako” for their fearlessness. The same men are infamous for enjoying a strong, a bold – a “barako” coffee! The result of their efforts is a bold, smoky, and robustly fragrant cup that gives you the willpower you need.
