SEED TO SIP:
Seriously (!) delicious coffee, organic and impactful!
This delicious organic specialty coffee is produced by women coffee growers located in the remote communities of Florida in Cajamarca and Vista Hermoza, Lonya Grande and Cococho in the Amazonas of Northern Peru. All coffee is shade grown at high altitudes along steep slopes amongst bananas, mangos, cocoa and avocado trees naturally maintaining a 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.
We, at 23 Degrees, are proud not only to procure coffees through this ethical and fair sourcing model but also support social projects through the Foundation. This year we fully funded a Medical Emergency Fund which provides first aid training and crucial medical expenses for women coffee growers and their families. A heartfelt THANK YOU to all our amazing customers for making this possible.
