Here at York Emporium, we love coffees that have amazing stories attached to them and the Peru Cecanor Café Femenino certainly has one to tell.
Café Femenino is a co-operative set up in 2004 by female coffee producers across Peru. Originating in Cecanor, many of them abused and mistreated, their aim was to educate and empower the next generation of women working within peru's coffee trade. For what was seemingly a male dominant industry, the women of Café Femenino worked towards equality and economic power.
Today the women of Café Femenino are proud of what they have accomplished but still strive to make positive cultural changes within their communities. Their success is measurable by the product they produce and it's safe to say we absolutely love this coffee. It is super sweet, full bodied with low acidity, a great morning coffee and if you were a fan of our Peru Tunki, you're going to love this...
Shade-grown in the Peruvian Andes at an altitude of 1600-2000 metres amongst the most beautiful flora and fauna of the Tambopata Valley, this coffee is traditionally farmed and produced without the use of pesticides or chemicals.
