The Philippine Coffee Industry Roadmap 2017-2022 was created to improve the coffee production and keep up with the increasing local demand, providing measures to increase local production and make locally produced coffee products competitive in the global market.


The Coffee Working Group will focus on leveraging the efforts of different stakeholders to implement the Roadmap. Along with the Philippine Council for Agriculture and Fisheries (PCAF), the Coffee WG will strive to influence government policies and programs to prioritize coffee as a high-value crop. This is crucial in achieving the Roadmap’s target of increasing local production by 214,626 metric tons (MT) from the current annual output of about 37,000 MT.


  • The Coffee Working Group has aligned itself with the Philippine Coffee Industry Roadmap 2017-2022. Guided by the Roadmap, the Coffee Working Group is tasked to ensure and monitor the development of the coffee industry and the attainment of the following goals:

    • Increase the average yield of green coffee beans from 0.3 metric ton/ hectare to 1 metric ton/hectare by 2022, and production by 5% per annum.

    • Increase the total planting area from 140,522 hectares to 213,788 hectares by 2022.

    • Improve farmers’ standard of living by increasing incomes by 15% per annum through diversified sustainable agribusiness farming systems.

    • Increase employment in the coffee industry by 3% by 2022.

  • In addition, Nestlé Philippines and the German Agency for International Cooperation (GIZ) launched Project Coffee+ from 2018-2020 to increase coffee farmers’ yields to one metric ton per hectare, increasing incomes and improving the economic viability of their farming systems. The initial focus is on training farmers in Bukidnon and Sultan Kudarat in agronomic practices such as grafting, pruning, rejuvenation organic and inorganic fertilization, as well as entrepreneurial skills.

  • Separately, the PPSA is facilitating the development of coffee value chain analysis that aims to understand the dynamics of coffee buying and selling at the local level.
