Story

This washed coffee is sourced from 124 women producers organized around the Asociación de Productores Cafetaleros de la Cuenca del Rio Marañón (APROCCURMA), a cooperative that operates in the providence of Rodríguez de Mendoza, Peru. This offering is particularly exciting because it builds upon growing energy within the industry around initiatives that support a holistic approach to sustainability that includes gender equality and women in coffee--especially women at origin. They represent a large percentage of the labor input for the coffee industry, yet earn very little from the revenue generated from green coffee because very few women own the land utilized for coffee production. For the past five years, APROCCURMA has worked directly with women producers to establish land ownership and provide training on organic management and environmental practices. In fact, 100% of the production of this coffee (from farming to harvesting to processing) was performed entirely by women. This lot is a result of those efforts, which will provide women producers with the revenue generated from coffee production on farms owned and managed by women, as well as improve the environmental sustainability of their production and processing operations.
