Now I’m no coffee drinker, but this has me quite worried: The local barako coffee is on its way to extinction. One thousand two hundred bags of this coffee are being exported every year. But in five years, the barako coffee plant could become totally obliterated. One hundred thousand barako trees must be planted to help the coffee survive, and seedlings for the plant cost only PhP30, or 73 cents!
