Coffee is one of the world’s most well-loved beverages and for good reason. Aside from giving people the extra jolt they need to get through the day’s work or simply a moment to relax and recollect one’s self, coffee is also packed with a lot of health benefits when consumed in moderation. In honor of this iconic and versatile drink, the 13th Manila Food and Beverage Expo (MAFBEX) which is set to return this June, is thrilled to present a new addition to its roster of event highlights.Aptly named the Brew District Pavilion, an area inside MAFBEX 2019 will be dedicated to gathering various coffee brands, providers, manufacturers, and everyone else in between in an effort to empower the country’s burgeoning coffee industry. As remarked by Pacita Juan, the President & Co-Chair of Philippine Coffee Board, Inc., “We are grateful for the support the Philippine coffee industry receives from Manila Food and Beverage Expo. We hope that many more businesses are borne out of this exposition which will further promote and bolster the Philippine coffee industry’’
More than just promoting the local coffee industry, MAFBEX 2019 also seeks to nurture Filipinos’ love for coffee by providing them with an enjoyable venue where they could explore various types of coffee drinks and products. Though still in its pilot stage, the Brew District pavilion already boasts of a diverse product and brand profile.
