Cafe Femenino is a project set up to support and empower women coffee producers around the world. It's been many years since we last had their coffee and we are very pleased to welcome this one back.

The coffee is produced by around 800 women coffee producers. They grow a range of different varietals including Typica, Bourbon and Villa Sarchi. Coffee is hand-harvested and delivered to local collection centres and taken for processing at a wet mill. Coffee is pulped to remove the fruit, washed and then sun-dried. This is a really great example of clean, juicy and well balanced organic coffee produced in Peru.

The following is taken from the Cafe Femenino website and explains a bit more about the project:


'Women in remote and rural coff­ee communities face a host of challenges that keep them trapped in poverty.  Many of these isolated women live in male-dominated societies and have very little financial control or decision-making power.

In 2004, 464 women farmers in northern Peru decided to change this dynamic by separating their coffee production from the men’s. In that moment, for the first time, this group of women created their own product and income. Their coffee cooperative CECANOR joined their commercial partner Organic Products Trading Company (OPTCO) to create Café Femenino—a gender-focused program to support social justice and empowerment for women coffee producers worldwide.'

This coffee is an excellent example of a juicy but well-balanced coffee from Colombia and is produced by farmers from the Planadas area of Tolima. These farmers are grouped together into associations, this helps to consolidate costs and allows farmers to work together to produce larger lots with full organic certification.

Planadas Organic Coffee Farm

Each small-hold farmer will hand harvest from their trees often on farms less than 5 hectares in size. After harvesting ripe cherry the coffee is rested then pulped and fermented before drying on patios or raised tables. Some producers might not have space or equipment to process and dry their own coffee. In this case, they will deliver harvested cherry to a centralized washing station for processing, similar to the harvesting and processing process in east Africa.

Once dried to a moisture content of about 11 the coffee is taken for milling and farmer lots are combined and prepared for export.
