Copra: Liquid Gold

Copra making, Cagbalete Island, Quezon Province

It was a fortunate time when I and the rest of our dispatch crew was invited by a local family in Cagbalete Island, Quezon Province in a recent dispatch to witness the copra making process. They offered us fresh, sweet coconut juice and tubo or coconut fruit as a welcome treat.

Copra making is very widespread local production in the Philippine provinces. It is one of the major source of income to both locals and government as this coconut oil are for export. It’s a long, elaborate and laborious process to extract these liquid gold, but every drop of it is worth the hard labor.
