Chocolate sweetness marks this coffee, caramel and subtle grape leave a lingering aftertaste
Café Mujeres (Women’s Coffee) is a project led by a dry mill based in Quito who saw the gender inequalities in coffee production and started organising the women producers of the area of Rio Intag into an association. This project started in 2010 and up to date it has encompassed over 320 producers directly. Its aim is to make women feel empowered and take ownership of their profession as coffee growers and producers of a high quality product, it also gives them the opportunity to work in a safe environment and to be financially independent. Café Mujeres is not only important for gender equality in the area but for protection of the natural biosphere against mining. For many years, the community of Rio Intag has been fighting against mining in the area to protect the biodiversity, their soil and water. Coffee production offers the locals a sustainable alternative economy to mining.
