The Pride of Guatemala in a Beautiful, Single-Origin Coffee
This Fair Trade organic coffee is grown on farms owned and operated by women producers located in the Huehuetenango and Sololá regions of Guatemala.
The women farmers are part of two co-ops founded in the 1980s. Despite regional political instability and poverty, they grew steadily throughout the 1990s. The cooperatives became certified by Fair Trade Labeling Organizations International (FLO) and received their organic certifications. With the help of the Café Femenino organization, the women producers in these co-ops began producing and exporting specialty-grade coffee in the late 1990s.
The women of ASOBAGRI Co-op in Guatemala have used the revenue from their Fair Trade sales to create real change in their community. Among other initiatives, they have created a healthcare program that assists member families in covering emergency medical costs. They have also invested in promoting literacy and education funding in their communities with grants for children of members to provide for primary and higher education costs.
When you choose Café Femenino Coffee, you choose a brand that provides leadership opportunities and ownership rights to women coffee farmers like those of the ASOBAGRI Cooperative.
