New Cafe Femenino origin

by JulieCraves on August 10, 2006

I’ve previously written about Cafe Femenino, sourced from a Peruvian project run entirely by women.  These beans are available from a variety of roasters, although I’ve always purchased from Grounds for Change, which makes an additional donation to the project.

I received a notice from Grounds for Change that they are offering Cafe Femenino from Mexico…

“…grown, processed and traded exclusively by a group of women in southern Chiapas state. The women control the proceeds from the sale of their crop and are fully involved in planning for the next year.

This women’s cooperative cultivates their Fair Trade, organic, shade grown coffee within the buffer zone for the El Triunfo Biosphere Reserve, a Conservation International project that includes nearly 300,000 acres of ten distinct forest types, from perennial tropical forest to high altitude cloud forest.”

Bravo, Grounds for Change.
