Peru Café Femenino
For over a decade, we have had the privilege to support the nonprofit Café Feminino by purchasing their Peru Fair Trade coffee. Café Feminino’s mission is to enhance the lives of women and families in the coffee-producing communities throughout the world. The Peru chapter leads and supports several initiatives that support the livelihoods of women with over 800 participating women. Feel good while drinking this coffee with a raisin, nutty flavor that leaves a great punch of citrus.
The women of CECANOR are proud to be the originators of the Café Femenino concept. While women have always been crucial to coffee production in Peru, men traditionally held the economic power. In 2004, 464 female coffee producers in Peru united to change this dynamic and take a step toward empowerment by creating the first Café Femenino co-op. Now, they feel proud to instill in their daughters the expectation that they will grow up to become leaders in their community—just like their mothers and grandmothers.
