A little about this coffee from the importer - Cafe Imports:

 

Our first lots from Cooperativa RAOS (Regional de Agricultores Orgánicos de la Sierra) came in 2015, and over the next few years we have been thrilled to see both the quality and the quantity of these coffees improve: The 2016/2017 harvest saw our first opportunity to source a Women Coffee Producer lot from this group whose 270-farmer membership includes 77 women.

One of the reasons the cooperative is determined to market its women members' coffee is that 60 percent of the women face gender-based legal issues with regards to the ownership of their land, as well as limitations to the credit they can receive to finance the harvest every year. In addition to the program premiums these women receive for this lot, Cooperativa RAOS has many very active educational support programs open to all members. Gender assemblies are held by female members in order to discuss the women's needs, as well as ways of increasing equity within the group and community.
