Discover Philippines in Cups of Coffee at This Year’s Manila Coffee Festival

The Manila Coffee Festival (MCF) is back for a second year as Coffee Science Center takes the event to its rightful home – the vibrant and iconic city of Manila. Hosted by the City of Manila, led by Mayor Isko “Yorme” Moreno, and presented by The Manila Hotel, the Manila Coffee Festival 2020 is a continuation of a tradition carried by its international counterparts – the New York Coffee Festival, London Coffee Festival, and Amsterdam Coffee Festival.
