DESCRIPTION
Cafe Femenino Mexico is another origin for this special project that empowers women coffee farmers by involving them in every step of the coffee production process. This coffee is grown, processed and traded exclusively by a group of women in southern Chiapas state. The women control the proceeds from the sale of their crop and are fully involved in planning for the next year. The Cafe Femenino project started in Northern Peru and it is now also available from Chiapas, Mexico.

This women's cooperative cultivates their Fair Trade, organic, shade grown coffee within the buffer zone for the El Triunfo Biosphere Reserve, a Conservation International project that includes nearly 300,000 acres of ten distinct forest types, from perennial tropical forest to high altitude cloud forest. The farmers use conservation practices such as cover crops, the production of organic fertilizers and ecological coffee wet-processing methods, which help them cultivate their coffee with minimal impact on the surrounding ecosystems.

The El Triunfo Biosphere Reserve is home to many rare and endangered species, including 300 species of birds, 45 types of reptiles, and 30 species of mammals. Several iconic species such as the Resplendent Quetzal and the Jaguar also live in the Reserve.

Grounds for Change will donate 10 cents for each pound of Cafe Femenino Mexico sold directly back to this women's coffee growing project.

Cafe Femenino Mexico is a medium bodied coffee with a bright, nutty flavor and subtle sweetness that is enhanced by a delicate medium roast. We know that you will enjoy this unique coffee for its great taste as well as for the special story that underlies its production.

This coffee is Fair Trade Certified by IMO, Organic Certified by the Washington State Department of Agriculture and grown in shaded conditions by small farmer cooperatives. In addition, the complete carbon footprint (from crop to cup) for this coffee has been offset with tree planting, which qualifies it as a CarbonFree Certified product by CarbonFund.org.

All of our coffee is roasted to order and shipped fresh daily. We package in air-tight, foil-lined bags with one-way degassing valves to preserve freshness.
