Coffee and Conservation

Posted: September 1, 2006

If you’re looking for a resource to identify coffee producers that are environmentally and socially conscious, here you go. Coffee and Conversation. This particular post discusses Cafe Femenino Peru – “Out of Peru comes a story of strength, unity and hope. A new niche coffee, Cafe Femenino Peru, has evolved that is changing the role of women in rural coffee communities.”

A similar coffee is not available from Mexico - "...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. Grounds for Change will donate 25 cents for each pound of Cafe Femenino Mexico sold directly back to this women's coffee growing project.

Coffee Conscientious consumers are also demand quality and flavor. This product appears to meet the criteria with a medium body and bright, nutty flavor with subtle sweetness. I believe I’ll try it!
