What is Café Femenino?
The Café Femenino Foundation is an international, non-profit organization. They encourage and support women of coffee-growing communities. The focus is for the women to become plantation owners and managers as well as workers.
Café Femenino coffees are the very definition of relationship coffees. In general, the coffee production industry has a heavy reliance on female labor. The Femenino program works to end poverty affecting women within the coffee industry.
Café Femenino knows that when the women in any community thrive, so does the community in general. This affects their families, their relationships, and the community’s services. The supported women grow the crops and make financial decisions. Then these benefits continue and extend into the future through new generations. The inherent dignity of paid work and ownership empowers the whole community.
What does Cafe Femenino offer?
- Legal rights to their farmland
- Leadership positions
- Financial decision making power
- Direct payment for their coffee products
