Amadeo, Cavite's Pahimis Festival

Villar Foundation Managing Director and Misis Hanepbuhay Cynthia Villar, together with Cavite Sixth District Congressman Antonio Ferrer, General Trias Mayor Jonjon Ferrer, Amadeo Mayor Benjarde Villanueva and PCSO Dir. Aleta Tolentino, leads the ceremonial coffee toast during the Pahimis Coffee Festival in Amadeo, Cavite. The festival is a thanksgiving for the bountiful coffee harvest of the Amadeans.

The Pahimis Festival has been a tradition of giving thanks to God and nature for good harvest for the whole year round. Coffee is the major crop of Amadeo in the province of Cavite and Amedeans have coined Pahimis festival just to celebrate the good harvest and other blessings in their life.


This festivity was started in 2002 and it meant to boost coffee industry in Cavite particularly in Amadeo. This festival also aims on encouraging its neighboring towns to continue the old and still lucrative farm industry of coffee. Amadeans also want everyone including those from government that it needed help to restore the declining industry.

Pahimis festival is known to different parts of the Philippines that is why many known figures like Cynthia Villar, the Managing Director of Villar Foundation, and other local politicians have paid time visiting the annual event.

Misis Cynthia Villar commended the municipality of Amadeo since Pahimis festivity is united with eco-awareness similar to the livelihood programs in which she supervised in Las Piñas when she was representative in the said city. 

Villar is a known advocate of environment protection and bringing livelihood  to the poorest and jobless people through Villar Foundation's livelihood training program.

Amadeans are not only lucky in having Misis Hanep Buhay as their backer. Neighboring towns and cities have pledged in helping restore the lucrative industry. Congressman of the 6th District of Cavite Antonio Ferrer, General Trias Mayor Jonjon Ferrer and PCSO Director Aleta Tolentino have shown support by joining Amadeo Mayor Benjarde Villanueva during the opening ceremony of the Pahimis festival.

  4. I'm not good with description but all I can say is that the coffee from Amadeo truly has this distinct taste different from the others - its aroma too, is a major factor. If ya'all have time, pay a visit at Cafe Amadeo so ya'all can have a better judgment and choices of Caviteño coffee :)
