Cafe AGWAS has a limited capacity of only 44 diners to preserve the farm's serene and relaxing atmosphere. The term Agwas comes from the Visayan term which means a water system source. This is in respect and appreciation to the Farm's existing spring water source that has provided clean drinking water for generations to the surrounding mountain communities. This is also in connection to the Farm's name ALHIBÉ, which is also a visayan term for Water reservoir. So the land's ALHIBE has now an AGWAS attached to it
When the hippie souls plan on a trip, their first choice would always be up in the mountains, or anywhere surrounded with trees and being close to nature. So when this space was created, they poured out that dreamy vision into this place. Meticulously planned to scoot over these tiny spaces in between trees. Sit literally under the leaf and tree canopies, then when nighttime comes, watch glittering ball of lights lit up by fireflies.
From conceptualizing its bamboo architecture, to the food that the cafe serves, the owners opened its first bamboo café up in the mountains, using locally sourced bamboo materials, and handmade by the locals to satiate that constant calling to be close to nature.
