The Café Femenino Guatemala Program began in 2005 when women coffee farmers first organized in order to receive fair compensation for their essential role in Guatemala’s coffee industry. Despite initial barriers including an ingrained cultural stigma against women meeting without men, the women have worked tirelessly to grow Café Femenino Guatemala.
The Café Femenino coffee program is one-of-a-kind ethical sourcing model committed to ending the cycle of poverty affecting women coffee farmers across the world. Café Femenino provides direct compensation to women farmers, along with the opportunity and resources to enact positive change in their communities and on their own terms.
