The Coffee Innovation Center in the institution is part of DOST’s R&D Agenda which will serve as a business incubator for start-ups and as a common service facility for micro and small coffee processors who are not yet prepared to invest on constructing their own processing facility. Through the signing of the Memorandum of Agreement, DOST XI and DSSC aim to assist the agriculture and industry needs of the community and significantly contribute to the improvement and sustainability of the coffee industry in the province from “Seed to Cup”.
