'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.'

Great service - arrived very quickly despite Covid times! This has a good strong flavour, but not overpowering. I drink my coffee black without sugar, so it has to be just right and this is very pleasant to drink (I’m very fussy when it comes to coffee!) thank you will definitely order again.
