    The Cafe Femenino Story- Coffee is the second largest traded commodity in the world next to oil. 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. Harsh gender inequality, poverty and abuse are rampant in these coffee production regions. Most women coffee producers have no rights, no income and are abandoned by their husbands. With determination and desire for a better future, over 460 women coffee producers in Peru united to take a step toward achieving empowerment. This step came in the form of growing, harvesting and producing their own coffee called Cafe Femenino.

    By purchasing this coffee, you directly impact the lives of these women. The women who grow Cafe Femenino coffee are receiving direct income for the first time in their lives. Additionally, the project provides training focused on positive self esteem, curbing abuse, and aid to find additonal means of support. The women have expressed their thanks for your support and hope you will enjoy this special coffee.

    My Go-to Coffee!!!

    I began purchasing this coffee because I appreciated the mission of the coffee growers. Years later, I continue to buy it (in 5-lb bags) because the flavor is consistently smooth and delicious.
