Last sembreak, we went to Market! Market! and there we saw a stall selling Alamid Coffee. It's super new to us kasi wala naman nito sa Malabon, DUH?
We knew then that it's the tae talaga of Civet / Alamid.
Whole coffee beans talaga so we looked pa for coffee grinder kagabi. Ayun. I grinded na them kanina. Yiheee. Excited na ko matikman. Mamaya na lang. HAHAHA.

Coffee Alamid is Philippine Civet Coffee from wild civet droppings on the different forest floors of Philippine mountains. The Paradoxorus Philippinensis is a civet which belongs to the mongoose family - a nocturnal animal which uses its nose to choose the ripest and sweetest coffee cherries and relentlessly eats them during coffee season. Gathered very early in the morning usually before the sun rises, the forest dwellers climb the mountain and pick the civet droppings on the forest floors. On a good day, a gatherer can collect one kilo of civet droppings .
Coffee Alamid is a blend of the Philippine's finest Arabica, Liberica and Exelsa beans. When roasted, it exudes an almost musical, fruity aroma. It has a strong, sweet , dark chocolatey taste that is perfect for that morning kick or high power meetings. Definitely a clean cup.
