Some Facts About Us

It is in the mountainous area of Mt. Matutum in Polomolok, South Cotabato we can find some of the best civet coffee. Civet coffee is esteemed as being the “most expensive coffee in the world” and “one of the best in taste” according to coffee conesiours worldwide! Kafe Balos is widely known as one of the world’s finest and richest coffee to date, and has held this prestigious title for many years.

All of the civet cats living in the area are protected and roam free throughout the forest land, so none of them are caged or harmed in any way. Kafe Balos Project believes in practicing humane and ethical business so we do not cage our civets like prisoners only to make a quick profit as most of our competitors do. In addition, all Kafe Balos coffee are 100% organic.

Kafe Balos Project is a family owned and operated company with a passion both for business and nurturing nature. Kafe Balos Project practices Fair Trade with all of the local farmers. We believe in using technology to promote efficiency at community levels as a means to improving and sustaining business. In fact, we are active in the local community in providing linkage opportunities for community development projects. To date, we have facilitated the construction of two classrooms in the community for children in Grades 1-3, added one fresh water supply that runs from a mountain spring and have provided these children and families with clothing, and school supplies as needed. We also teach them how to farm other crops and how to make their own concrete bricks so that they can build stronger homes.

When you purchase any of our Kafe Balos products remember, you are not only buying a taste of the best coffee in the world but you are also playing a direct role in building and sustaining the lives of the B’laan community in Mt. Matutum.
