CAFE FEMENINO: The Original Fair-Trade Relationship Coffees, available in Lethbridge, Roasted by Cupper's Coffee.
Cafe Femenino is a non-profit organization that encourages and supports the women of coffee-growing communities all over the world to become plantation owners, managers and workers.
Cafe Femenino understands that when the women of any community thrive, so does the community in general: the families, relationships, and services.
The Cafe Femenino Organization has developed a coffee growing/exporting model that is ground-breaking in its ability to support the growers.
When the women are supported in growing the crops and making financial decisions, the benefits extend into the future through new generations.
Educational priorities differ in different parts of the world.
For example, young girls in Peru are taught to read, whereas in Rwanda, women want to learn conflict resolution.
The inherent dignity of paid work and ownership empowers the whole community.
At Cupper's, we are very proud to have an on-going relationship with Cafe Femenino and the values it embodies.
We have supported Femenino coffees since 2006!
We send the Cafe Femenino organization a percentage of every Femenino pound we sell.
The money goes directly back to the women and the community that produced the coffee, to be spent on developing community services under the supervision of Femenino representatives.
Cafe Femenino coffees are the very definition of relationship coffees. Help us support them!
We're really excited to be launching our brand new Sumatra Femenino - by all accounts, an AMAZING coffee.
Josh & Al will roast a few sample batches to find the perfect roast. We LOVE the Femenino coffees:
Fair Trade, Organic,and always such high quality. Sumatra coffees are intense, earthy and layered, so we're expecting this coffee to be superb. We'll post the flavour profile soon.

So, someone somewhere decided that March is official "Peanut Butter" month.
Which we can TOTALLY get behind.
Thus, our March raffle basket is filled with Peanut-Butter-y, chocolatey goodies, as well as a huge collection of fun coffee and tea. Watch our facebook page to enter!
And of course, in keeping with the theme, we'll be making Peanut Butter Lattes as fast as we possibly can. If you feel adventurous, you can add our excellent Peanut Butter Monin syrup to ANY of our drinks, such as a chocolate frappe, or hot chocolate.
Rwanda Cafe Feminino coffee is full of flavour, and is one of the most highly rated coffees in Africa.
Let's not forget the "Feminino" part: money from every pound sold goes right back to the women who own the plantation, and planted and harvested the coffee. Feminino communities thrive.
