Coffee Alamid is Philippine Civet Coffee from wild civet droppings on the different forest floors of Philippine mountains. The Paradoxorus Philippinensis is a civet which belongs to the mongoose family – a nocturnal animal which uses its nose to choose the ripest and sweetest coffee cherries and relentlessly eats them during coffee season. Gathered very early in the morning usually before the sun rises, the forest dwellers climb the mountain and pick the civet droppings on the forest floors. On a good day, a gatherer can collect one kilo of civet droppings.

Coffee Alamid is a blend of the Philippine’s finest Arabica, Liberica and Exelsa beans. When roasted, it exudes an almost musical, fruity aroma. It has a strong, sweet, dark chocolatey taste that is perfect for that morning kick or high power meetings. Definitely a clean cup.


Bote Central, Inc. respects the wild animals in the forests and that we do not get coffee droppings from any caged civet. We also do not have any managed farm to propagate and protect civets. We leave the civets free , wild and happy in their own natural habitat without disturbing their ecosystem. We follow strict protocol procedures with all our pickers and that they understand that civets play an important role in the ecosystem — as natural seed dispersers in the forests.
