I do like the Arabica beans from Batangas region I just picked up a half kilo at our larger grocery store today the price was up there 550 a kilo they ground it at the grocery store.
We do the same - locally roasted arabica beans from Cordillera I think.. They have a medium or dark roast for 600p per Kg. Buy a half kilo at a time. I'm lazy and have them grind it. It's not quite as good as the espresso machine I use in the States but not bad. Definitely better than instant and I don't go to Starbucks although I will go to Bo's Coffee or Coffee Bean once in a while.
