About the Coffee
This coffee comes from the CESMACH Cooperative in the Chiapas region of Mexico. We have purchased coffee from this long-running co-op many times in the past, but this lot is extra special because it is 100% women-produced coffee! Back in 2006, a group of women who worked for the co-op – whose husbands were the sole members of the cooperative on paper – got together to make sure they received the credit they deserved for the work they were doing producing coffee. Today, there are 224 women members, from growers to tasters to board members. Women have a role in the production process all the way.
