What's in it?
This Peru co-op holds the unique designation as the inaugural Café Femenino group formed. Here, like most coffee farms, the women always participated, but the men held all of the economic power and controlled all the money. Women farmers now have land ownership, financial control, recognition, and voice. They have used the Cafe Femenino premiums to invest in community betterment projects, including libraries and improved literacy. In their advanced stage, the young girls are seeing their moms and grandmas leading change.
Because of their conviction, proven competency, and status as the co-originators of the Café Femenino concept in partnership with OPTCO, Café Femenino Peru has been selected to be the first Regenerative Organic Certification target that will be supported and made possible by the partnership between Organic Products Trading Company and Ampersand Coffee Roasters.
Product of Cafe Femenino Peru. 1/2 percent of Ampersand's revenue is donated to the International Women's Coffee Alliance.
