Coffee Education? Not an EASY Job...

DUMAGUETE COFFEE The Buglasan Festival, which happens every October in Dumaguete City is dubbed as the “Festival of Festivals”. The different cities and towns of Negros Oriental come together and participate by setting up their own showcases of their tourist attractions and some pasalubong items. Aside from the material things, there is also an almost 2-week long schedule of activities that are set up to suit practically everyone’s fancy.

Of course, the organizers give the different business entities a chance to set up shop at the site. Café Antonio opted to participate this year because we thought that it was a good opportunity to “strut our stuff” and show Negros Oriental how great our coffee is. After a couple of days of operation, we were already kind of feeling that coffee education is still indeed a challenge in Negros Oriental.

We realized that with this "type" of crowd, coffee would never be the beverage of choice for the homo sapiens. This crowd was indeed very much different from what we experienced last August at Silliman University during their Annual Founders Celebration, wherein ALL alcoholic beverages were supposedly banned.

So, Let's pack up and transfer our booth to St. Paul University! Let's celebrate with them on their Founders day and have a great cup of coffee (Hot/Iced/Blended)! See you there!
