In honor of International Women’s Day, we would like extend a sincere thank you to our partners at Café Femenino. With their hard work and dedication, Marilyn, [President of the Café Femenino Foundation], Connie [Café Femenino Director], and team have allowed us to truly make a difference in the community. In 2003, 464 women farmers in northern Peru decided to change the industry dynamic. For those who may not be familiar, we are thrilled to introduce you to this wonderful cause.
The Café Femenino coffee program is committed to:
- ending the cycle of poverty afflicting women coffee farmers across the world.
- providing direct compensation to women farmers.
- providing resources to enact positive change in their communities.
Joffrey’s is proud to source organic and fair trade certified coffee from Café Femenino Farms.
This coffee is not only high quality, it is also assisting the community that these women have worked so hard to develop.
“A farmer here, Erlita, has a new granddaughter who is 3 days old. Because of Café Femenino, her granddaughter will live in a community that respects women. This little girl’s life will be different because she’ll have access to education the same as her brother. And Erlita is proud that she herself has played an important role in creating a community where her granddaughter will have more opportunities.”
– SABINA; CECANOR, PERU FOUNDING PRESIDENT OF CAFE FEMENINO PERU
