CAFE FEMENINO

COFFEE

Cafe Femenino Coffees are sourced exclusively from thousands of women-owned and women-operated farms across nine countries. Available in single-origin roasts from Guatemala, Mexico, Peru, and Sumatra and specialty blends, including Espresso and limited editions, all of their coffees are certified USDA Organic and Fair Trade. Cafe Femenino Coffee is small-batch roasted in Hillsborough, North Carolina at Joe Van Gogh Coffee Roasters.

The Cafe Femenino Coffee story began in 2003. It was born out of a grassroots movement to give women coffee farmers the credit they deserve and the voice they need to build a better future for themselves, their families, and their communities.

The movement started in Peru where an innovative idea was conceived by Isabel Uriarte Latorre and her husband Victor Rojas Diaz, both members of small farming families from the Cajamarca region. Their idea: pay women directly for the coffee they produced, which would help bring them economic and social equality.

The Cafe Femenino movement took flight when Isabel proposed the idea of a women-only coffee brand to Gay and Garth Smith, co-founders of Organic Products Trading Company (OPTCO). 

Today, Cafe Femenino is a global movement, and Cafe Femenino Coffee is grown on thousands of women-owned and women-operated farms across nine countries. 

Not only is Cafe Femenino Coffee produced by women farmers, women play an integral role in all aspects of bringing the coffee to you. The importer, Organic Products Trading Company, was co-founded by a woman. The roasting team is led by a woman, and women handle sales and marketing for Cafe Femenino Coffee.

Cafe Femenino Coffee is your opportunity to support the industry-transforming Cafe Femenino Program, a one-of-a-kind ethical sourcing model that empowers women throughout the coffee value chain. Cafe Femenino Coffee supports Cafe Femenino Foundation, an international non-profit organization that administers a broad range of social and economic programs to support the women farmers and their communities.
