The Descent into the Past
A Brief History of Alfonso, Cavite
Alfonso has not always been “Alfonso”. It was once a vast land carpeted with a thick forest with few pocket settlements that later on composed the sitios Mataywanak, Pajo, Pangasab, and Alas-as. The place was formerly part of Indang, but the settlements, now quickly growing into barrios, needed accelerated development. A petition was made by community leaders Bonifacio Aveo and Felix Del Mundo to make the four barrios into a separate municipality. The petition was granted and the new municipality was named Alas-as after the Alas-as tree. After 17 years, the name was changed to Alfonso by the Spaniards after King Alfonso XII.

Cacao gathering. Cacao fruits are considered ripe when the color of the fruit turned red or yellow.
The cacao beans are then picked and placed in a "bilao".
The beans are dried under the sun and left there for 3-5 days. When the beans are dry, it will be subjected for roasting.
After the cocoa beans were roasted, seed coats will be removed and the beans that were left will be grind. The ground cocoa beans are mixed with various sweets and flavor for the cocoa tablets we have all been waiting for.
The cooked pure cocoa will be left to cool. When heat have escaped it already, cocoa tablets are molded into around 0.75 inch-thick delicious cocoa tablets. Molded cocoa tablets will be packed and Tablea de Alfonso by Delfa's Food Products are ready to be sold.
