Coffee Festival

A dancer showed her beautiful smile while performing at the street of Amadeo province of Cavite during the “Pahimis Festival” (Coffee Festival) on April 22, 2017. PAHIMIS is the Amadeo word for “pasasalamat” (thanksgiving) in the olden times. As a tradition, coffee farmers gave away his last can of harvest as a sign of thanksgiving, believing that by doing so, luck and abundance would come on the next harvest season. An eat-together gathering with neighbours will serve as the Pahimis before the start of business venture or relatives and friends were sent part or harvest of food as Pahimis.
