Peru - Cafe Femenino Organic
This washed process coffee is overall sweet and nutty. With notes of cocoa, pineapple, mild citrus and pomegranate. A smooth medium body.
All of our coffee is freshly roasted on the premises. It’s this fresh roasting that counts and makes our coffee taste so much better.
While women have always been crucial to coffee production in Peru, men traditionally held the economic power. In 2004, 464 Peruvian female coffee producers united to change this dynamic and take a step toward empowerment by creating the first Café Femenino co-op. Today over 800 women in six associations are involved in the Café Femenino project. Now, they feel proud to instill in their daughters the expectation that they will grow up not just with equality & independence but also to become leaders in their community.
