Mayor Gecolea eyes coffee industry boost with Rizal’s favorite Robusta

Apr 16, 2018 @ 20:36

Cabuyao City Mayor Rommel Gecolea is seeking to revitalize its coffee industry.

The Laguna politiko is banking on the confirmation that national hero Dr. Jose Rizal’s favorite beverage was Robusta coffee, a variety found in Tabuco.

Tabuco was the old name of Cabuyao.

“As we drink coffee, we will think of the same variety of coffee that Dr. Jose Rizal used to drink while writing his poems and novels in his time,” Gecolea said.

“Talking about Robusta coffee, it is a beautiful part of the history of our place that we ought to be proud of. I believe that we will not only relive the contribution of coffee in our history but we will also revitalize the economy of our hardworking and outstanding coffee farmers,” he added.
