Jacobina Biscuits
Attraction
2.67 km away

Square, flaky, and perfect for a snack, Jacobina Biscuits have become the most famous homegrown product of Mendez. According to owner Fe Panganiban, his grandfather Paterno Noceda named the biscuits after a beautiful woman he once met.
Noceda Bakery has been making them since 1947 and little has changed in the baking process over the years. Made of flour, sugar, milk, and butter, the dough is cut into tiny squares and baked for about 30 minutes in a wood-fueled brick oven.
Sold in snack packs (P27 to P55) and family packs (P125), the biscuits are available daily in the bakery in Mendez and in another branch in Tagaytay. The product is also exported to Filipino stores in other Asian countries and the United States.

Amadeo Coffee Farms
Attraction
6.79 km away

Exploring Amadeo wouldn't be complete without drinking a cup of Amadeo Coffee or Pahimis Blend, and getting lost in one of its coffee farms. Coffee farms carpet 75 percent, or 3,600 hectares, of Amadeo's total land area. With about 4,000 coffee farmers in town, every street reeks of coffee, some turned into dryer beds for coffee beans. While visitors can easily knock on someone's door to check out his coffee farm, the best farm to see is the farm project by the Department of Science and Technology (DOST), and the Philippine Council for Agriculture, Aquatic, and Natural Resources Research and Development (PCCAARRD). The 2.7-hectare farm project, called Science and Technology-based Farm on Coffee Production, is headed by the farmer-scientist Teodoro dela Cruz. He tours travelers around his farm, and introduces them to many coffee planting techniques such as multiple cropping, multiple stem pruning, and fertilizer application.
