ALFONSO AND BAILEN, CAVITE
COFFEE TEA AND BEE CAMP
April 6 – 8, 2024
Coffee. Honey. Chocolate. Wine. Indulge your senses in everything natural and organic as we visit two farms in the countryside just a couple of hours away from Manila! This three-day adventure happens on the long weekend of April 6 to 8, 2024 in two all-natural and all-organic farms in Bailen and Alfonso Cavite!
The soujourn starts off with coffee at Brookside Hills Leisure Farms in Bailen where we will experience real coffee farming by planting coffee trees, harvesting red cherries, roasting the beans the traditional way — on kawa over firewood — and learning how to brew coffee the right way.
Then we will get acquainted with the busy garden workers that has been valuable to farmers — the bees! Learn how these fascinating creatures pollinate the flowers that is essential for harvest, and at the same time, producing that sweet honey that we love to have in our tea and dishes. We will also be harvesting honey, and we are ready with your beesuits!
Then on the last day, we shall proceed to Nayon Kalikasan in Alfonso to make some tablea and enjoy a delectable morning snack of champorado or batirol! The farm also showcases an array of vegetables where we can our own lettuce for the salad in our lunch which we will enjoy by the waterfalls. And to cap this culinary journey, we will finish it off with calamansi wine-tasting that is best experienced at the orchard.
