The Women Behind the Coffee
The APROCCURMA (Asociacion de Productores Cafetaleros de la Cuenca del Rio Marañon) Co-op was formed in 2012 to give small growers the opportunity to bring their coffee to market and improve their livelihoods. Every effort related to this coffee, from farm maintenance to harvesting and processing, was performed by women producers. The farms are located in the mountainous province of Rodríguez de Mendoza in Amazonas, a region known for the fertility of its soils and temperate climate.
Giving Back: A Special Project
We are donating 10% of this coffee’s sales to the APROCCURMA Co-op’s sustainability initiatives. This project is in partnership with Jim’s Organic Coffee Trainer/Technician Christelle Debeuf, as a final step in her Specialty Coffee Association (SCA) Sustainability Certification. Peru sustainability projects include developing backyard gardens for food security, and promoting trout fishing & production as a year round source of additional income for coffee-growing families. Thank you for your support of this project!
