Kapihan: Celebration of Coffee

A Celebration of Coffee in the Philippines

The images, captured throughout the country through the lens of top photographer Neal Oshima, complements the well-written articles that accompany them. Kapihan is a must-have in every coffee-lovers' home
  • As coffee has long been used as a drink, it is inevitable that it will eventually spill-over to the other side of the table - our food. In one of the book's most exciting chapters, Cuisine experts Chef Gene Cordova of American Hospitality Academy Philippines and Chef Jam Mendoza create exclusive recipes of coffee for the readers' edible enjoyment
  • The long and careful process of coffee-making, from bean to brew, is also described and captured inside Kapihan's pages. Throughout that journey, readers will appreciate how coffee touches the lives of people from different walks of life
Full Description
Created to honor the Filipinos' unending love affair with coffee, Kapihan: A Celebration of Coffee in the Philippines is as pleasurable to read as sipping a fresh cup of coffee. It tells the story of how coffee journeyed around the world to get to the Philippines, how it spread into every corner of the archipelago, and into every context of human activity. Both social and sensual, coffee has created memories, anchored livelihoods and spawned relationships. This book is gallery, album, storybook, cookbook, part travelogue and repository of trivia. It will show how coffee acquired its own distinctive Philippine roots and how it has enabled Filipinos through the years. This beautiful book is but one reminder that coffee is much more than a constant companion - it is an irreplaceable and comforting cup, an enabler that will provide for longer and more meaningful conversations and relationships for generations to come.
