Hi Gbb I'm with you on the instant coffee I can't do it too often anymore it's quick but not satisfying. Have you tried the local markets or checked around all the grocery stores or asked around most refer to coffee beans as Barako coffee? Here's a link from Facebook from a spot in Batangas they might deliver as a last resort.
Coffee Beans are sold at the Baguio Public Market and they also grind them, but it looks like a long or slow ride to Baguio from Ilocos Sur. Those Balikbayan box prices add up and hardly a saving, most things can be found here it just takes a little walking in the larger markets I haven't had much luck asking citizens for information either.
