In the coffee industry, women make up a significant proportion of the labour force but are under-represented in leadership and decision making roles.
As a result, the bear the brunt of increasing poverty and social advantage all along the global coffee supply chain, particularly in the primary production stage.
To combat this inequality, we work with our coffee growers on a project called Para Ela, which translates literally “For Herself”
During the 4 months hand selection and sorting season, to financially empower the women of Campos Altos and shine a light on the financial disparity occurring in the country, our suppliers take action and dedicate entire hand selection and micro lot production to be harvested by women only.
During the hand selection season, the pickers earn 50% higher wages than the regional average and employee household income increase by 85% during the picking season as a direct result of Para Ela production.
This gives women more control over their household income which is fundamental to their financial security.We roast to order, shipping coffee every Tuesday. Orders placed after 10am Monday mornings will be shipped the following Tuesday. Delivery time is 1-2 business days.
