As a part of the Café Femenino program, this Peruvian coffee is grown, harvested, processed, and sold/traded by the women of the families and communities in which it is grown. The Café Femenino coffee program was created in 2004 by 464 women in northern Peru, and now exists in various coffee growing regions worldwide. It is aimed at ending the cycle of poverty affecting women in the coffee growing community, providing education, and helping roasters around the world give back a bit more to the hands which harvest their coffee.
Roasted to highlight it's intense cocoa nib flavor and lively acidity, this cup tastes quite like biting into a bar of dark chocolate. A heavier body and lasting caramel finish balance the cup.
