    probably local ground cocoa/cacao.... but then they would probably sell it as tablea(cocoa in tablets)

    in that case that would be local coffee, either from coffee beans or ground cooked corn. (some locals specially in the hinterlands do take corn coffee)

    would've have helped if u tried to smell it. i'm sure it wont hurt... :wink:

    Thanks for the photos!

    I'd venture that it is not coffee. If it is, then it has not been adequately roasted. In my (limited) experience baraco coffee does not go through this colour stage in roasting.

    I'm still in shock that a nation which produces such excellent coffee could become adicted to the "instant" stuff.

    Unfortunately, yes, littering is a common practice of Filipinos. Hence, the trash you seen strewn about everywhere. Forget about being a foreigner, and tell her exactly how bad and disrespectful to God's planet her actions are. If littering is a "value" of the Filipino, it is a bad one that needs to be changed, not respected.

    I totally agree to d. guru. I'm a filipino but I dont have a habit of throwing rabbish anywhere. It's hurting my eye if I see people throwing trash all over the place. Descipline then cleanliness comes to yourself, first.

    yeah that might well be maybe grinded tablets to sell like cheap version of Milo

    I was with a couple of kids (family) so it was not that easy to explore in my own time, more of a flying American tourist kind of visit where I managed to take a couple of pictures on our way to Apo (I was the family karabau :wink: )

    I would not recomend to anybody to do take these banka's with kids who can not swim, that was some rough ride and we arrived completly soaked and roasted (and the kids in shock, that was some first time on a banka experiance).

    Well I don't think it is something typical filipino, if they did not sweep the streets twice a week in Amsterdam it would be pilling waist high in a month (and ankle deep in dog sh*t) and that is with trash cans everywhere and fines.
