Inspired by ancient Filipino folklore where deities bestow gifts of knowledge and bountiful harvests to our ancestors, comes the "Bathala Series"
"Bathala Series" is the result of the revolutionary project of Henry and Sons under its social advocacy arm Foundation of Sustainable Coffee Excellence in partnership with the coffee community in Sitio Hartwell, Itogon, Benguet.
2020 started with an amazing coffee harvest in Itogon, Benguet. With beautiful coffee cherries freshly harvested from the backyard of the coffee farmers, Henry and Sons partnered with World Barista Champion and Coffee Innovator Sasa Sestic to extract the best taste out of these coffee cherries through specially designed processing methods. To bring out the full potential and rich flavor profile of the coffees, innovative methods we call "Designer Maceration" were used during the post-harvest process.
To make it easy for consumers we have grouped the Bathala coffees by the flavors it exhibits.
Kayumanggi: Coffees with Chocolate, Cereals, Brown Spice and Nuts. These coffees are processed to exhibit the more traditional favors of coffee.
Ikapati: Coffee with Intense Flavors, Powerful fruit qualities, and Unique flavors. This includes coffees where fermentation has been pushed to the edge, expect bold and strong flavors.
