By | February 18, 2012

This weekend marks another year for the Pahimis Coffee Festival in Amadeo, Cavite and it was a stroke of luck that I passed by the town yesterday and witnessed some of their festivities.

I’ve heard about the Pahimis Coffee Festival for the first time around three years ago but never really had the chance to go, that’s why I was glad to be part of it this year.

I arrived a bit late so I was not able to catch all of the barangays who participated in the presentation.
