Last Saturday, 29 October 2016, Coffee For Peace, Inc. (CFP) was featured in a national television program called Reel Time, over GMA News TV. The coffee industry in the Philippines recognized CFP as a quality standard leader in the country.


It was an honor to share our passion at CFP to train coffee farmers in many parts of the country — Cordillera Mountains, Sierra Madre Mountains, Mount Kitanglad, Mount Apo, Mount Matutum — to raise their production quality to global standards. The end purpose is for the coffee farmers to have enough self-confidence to sell their coffee products at a price that is just, and at a trading practice that is sustainable.


PeaceBuilders Community facilitates relationship and partnerships with farming communities, trains coffee farmers, and sets up processing facilities — sustained and energized by Peace and Reconciliation principles and values.


Coffee For Peace looks after quality control, marketing, and other social entrepreneurial development needs and concerns of the coffee farmers. We also seek to contribute towards the nationalization of our coffee industry and to help in the peace and reconciliation of our people with the Creator, with our Being, with Others, and with the Creation.



This will be shown again on Friday, 04 November 2016, 10:00 AM PHT. “Reel Time” GMA News TV.
