Discover the inspiring Cafe Femenino story
This delicious organic specialty coffee is produced by women coffee growers in remote communities of Northern Peru. All coffee is shade-grown at high altitudes along steep slopes amongst bananas, mangos, cocoa and avocado trees naturally maintaining healthy soil and habitat.
Under the Café Femenino Program, which started in 2004 in Peru, women coffee growers harvest and sell their own coffee. The positive impact of this program has been hugely felt. The wellbeing, health and nutrition of families and communities has noticeably improved, and women are increasingly recognised for their contribution. An integral part of the program is the work of its Foundation, which supports social and environmental projects amongst its coffee-growing communities.
Ethical coffee prices
One of the reasons why the Cafe Femenino Program is hugely successful is the ethical coffee prices that are paid to farmers under the program. What do we mean by ethical coffee prices?
All Café Femenino coffee is specialty coffee and carries Fairtrade and Organic Certifications. As such coffee sold under the program attract prices that are made up of:
- the Fairtrade price (if that falls below the commodity price for coffee),
- the Fairtrade premium,
- a premium for organic certified coffee,
- a Café Femenino program premium, and
- a premium for the quality of the coffee.
Our sponsored projects
We, at 23 Degrees, are proud not only to procure coffees through this ethical and fair sourcing model but also to support social projects through the Cafe Femenino Foundation. We fully funded a Medical Emergency Fund which provides first aid training and crucial medical expenses for women coffee growers and their families. And together with our coffee roaster friends and B Corp fellows at Grounds for Change we funded the construction of a water reservoir helping coffee-farming families of the San Jose Huanama community in the Lambayeque region to combat the effects of climate change. A heartfelt THANK YOU to all our amazing customers for making this possible.

SUSTAINABLE COFFEE FROM CERTIFIED ORGANIC COFFEE FARMS
When sourcing our coffees, we not only select the best coffees based on the unique tasting profiles, but we are also conscious of the coffee’s environmental impact. This means considering the coffees’ cultivation, harvesting and any processing undertaken at the farm.
This coffee originates from certified organic farms of our Cafe Femenino coffee growers and has arrived on Australian shores as organic certified coffee. Organic certified coffees require our farmers to have followed strict protocols in the cultivation process and not to have used any synthetic fertilisers or harmful pesticides. That’s good for you, good for the farmer and kind to the planet. Learn more about organic coffee and organic coffee farming.
