Topic: Kapeng Barako / Liberica Coffee from Batangas (2 msgs / 46 lines)
1) From: mikewas
A cooking blog from the Philippines that I read on occasion. Today it's
about coffee. I think I'll pass on the Barako coffee, but coffee-fed
wild boar sounds like it'd be a great BBQ.

Coffee from Batangas via Market Manila by Marketman on 4/7/08 Barako in
Filipino means a stud. When you see a MALE pig in a sidecar of a
tricycle on his way to see the lasses down the provincial road, they
refer to him as a barako, presumably going off to "work" his magic and
sire a dozen piglets. And he is compensated for his "effort" with at
least one of the piglets from the resulting litter. Nice job, if you
can get it, I suppose. But I digress. Barako is also apparently the
term given to wild boar which along with civets and other tropical
creatures, used to (there aren't many wild boar left in Batangas and
environs) find the fruits of the coffee tree scrumptious snacking fare.
So I am making a wild connection that the reason that our local coffee
is called barako is because it is strong, pungent, and well-liked by
wild boar...
