Peru Cafe Feminino Rich, delicious coffee available in whole bean or ground.
There are currently well over 1000 women coffee farmers involved with the Cafe Femenino Coffee Project in Peru. The women farmers participate in all steps of the process: preparing the terrain, tending plants in the nurseries, making the compost to fertilize the soil, preparing bio-fertilizers as well as harvesting, de-pulping, fermenting, and drying the coffee. It is very rare for women to participate in coffee sales or deciding how the money from coffee sales will be used - all of which they do with Cafe Femenino.
With the help of organic and fair trade premiums, a lot has been accomplished in the rural communities of coffee-producing countries, including the improvement in the local economies, diets, sanitation and acquisition of new wet-processing mills for green coffee beans. However, the marginalization of women in these rural communities continues.
