Peru Cafe Feminino
this story is about how woman farmers can lead a sustainable life.
Our current Peru FTO is not from Feminino, but it has some of the best flavors and finish of any FAIRTRADE Organic certified coffee we have tasted over the last 12 months.
Where would we be in this world without women ?
A little known fact is that women play an important role in the farming and production of raw (green) coffee beans.
Cafe Feminino is an organisation spanning origins such as Peru, Colombia, Bolivia, Dominican Republic, Guatemala and Mexico.
We are pleased to make this superb FAIRTRADE Organic coffee available to mycuppa customers.
The following information has been reproduced from the Cafe Feminino website.
Women coffee producers make up 30 percent of the 25 million coffee growers that are responsible for producing 75 percent of the world's coffee.
With determination and desire for a better future, over 460 women coffee producers in Peru united to take a step toward achieving empowerment.
Organic Products Trading Company (OPTCO) along with CECANOR Cooperative, PROASSA, CICAP and Cordaid joined forces to support the women in their efforts to achieve their goals. Together, the Café Femenino Coffee Project was founded in 2004.
More than 1,500 women in Bolivia, Colombia, Dominican Republic, Guatemala, Mexico and Peru are active in the project to achieve empowerment, build social and support networks, and earn incomes through the production and sale of the Café Femenino Coffee.
The Café Femenino Coffee is imported exclusively by OPTCO and distributed by more than 80 roasters whom pay a premium above the fair trade price.
Café Femenino is high-quality, organic coffee that is left unblended to preserve the acidity, body, flavor and aroma that are unique to each Café Femenino Coffee variety.
We have a small quantity of the stunning Peru Cafe Feminino FAIRTRADE Organic coffee available in our store for a limited time.
