Our women producer coffee from Mexico is part of the Women Coffee Producers Program through Cafe Imports. The women belong to the Triunfo Verde Cooperative which is comprised of 346 members. The farms are located in the buffer zone of El Triunfo Biosphere Reserve in the highlands of the Sierra Madre de Chiapas. The Biosphere Reserve is one of the world’s most diverse forest reserves containing Mesoamerica’s largest continuous cloud forest and serves as a refuge to thousands of animal and plant species. The co-op works in conjunction with the ideals of the Reserve, producing shade-grown coffee with respect to biological corridors created for the migration of birds and animals. The Reserve is located near the border of Guatemala and the famous coffee-growing region of Huehuetenango.
The Women Coffee Producers Program helps women from around the world gain better access to the coffee market. By attaining to guidelines and parameters set forth by Cafe Imports, the women are paid a premium per pound for their coffee. The higher price represents a step towards eliminating the inequity that women face in coffee-growing countries. The women chose to use the funds on community projects, education and school efforts, and health care issues that face their communities. We feel honored to be the last hands to touch this coffee, from woman to woman to woman. When you buy this Fair Trade, organic coffee, you are supporting women and their community around the world.
