What does the Silca name stand for?
- In 2010, we changed the Jamica Coffee name to Silca Coffee Roasting Company, Inc. “Silca” stands for Silang, Cavite, which is the town where our operations are located, the origin of much of our coffee and our hometown. Silca represents our rich coffee heritage by bringing back the original Silca Trading name from 1983 (our coffee importing company in the US) and tracing back our history and roots in the town of Silang. The new name symbolizes everything great from our past and is the new face of the Company as we prepare for something even bigger in the future. Learn More About Our Story Here.
