Story

We love this coffee for lots of reasons. First of all, we love drinking it! And we’ve grown deeply attached to the community it comes from. The farmers who produce it are our friends. The area has two daycare centers that needed funding, so we started contributing to them. Our small contributions have had an enormous effect on the families, the community, and the coffee itself. Mothers of the village help pick coffee, which has doubled the incomes of many families and helped alleviate an acute harvest-time labor shortage. And as it turns out, the better the coffee pickers are taken care of, the better the coffee. Even more, the coffee is Women Care Certified. WCC is a certification that verifies equal opportunity is given across genders; women in particular are given opportunities and encouraged to advance in management and responsibility at each level of production; from the farm to export.
