With the revitalization of the industry, Mayor OJ Ambagan of Amadeo has simultaneously initiated activities within his jurisdiction.
The municipality has hosted the Pahimis Festivals and along with this has similarly initiated the formation of the Café Amadeo
Development Cooperative in June 28, 2002 to actively engage in coffee beans trading and ground coffee processing. It was
organized with 15 active big farmers/millers and boasts of a current capital of about P2M. It was able to corner a monthly
order of about P 80, 000 sales of brewed coffee with the provincial government. It has also been actively participating in
various local fairs/expositions. Last year alone, the cooperative has generated total sales of P2.9M. The cooperative has
been a potent force in the marketing of the Amadeo coffee beans to Nestle Philippines, Universal Robina Corp., Figaro to name
a few big coffee bean users. It has also set up five (5) market outlets, three (3) in Cavite, one (1) in Parañaque City
and lately in San Fernando, Pampanga. To this day, the cooperative is fast growing and keeping to its mission of continually
supplying best grade coffee beans and ground coffee for the entire benefit of Amadeo Coffee farmers (4,560) in general and
of its members in particular.
It is also noteworthy to mention the success of an individual enterprise (RA Enterprises) that has recently
penetrated the US Market with its beans and ground coffee. Owned and managed by Ms. Olive Arias also of Amadeo.
Additionally, the "Adopt a Coffee Farm Program&" has been launched where a Manila based investor
is leased a hectare farm lot for P10, 000 a year and plant this with coffee trees. There were about 40 who initially enrolled
in the program and still growing. Total investments from this is about P400, 000.00.
Amadeo indeed has gone a long way as a model coffee village of the province.
