we collaborate with smallholder womxn coffee producers so they can drive their communities towards a sustainable future
Ericka is a smallholder coffee producer from Los Santos, Costa Rica. Before 2016, she invested $1.40 to produce a pound of coffee, but earned less than $1.20 per pound of coffee, making a loss from coffee production.
Ericka is one of five million smallholder womxn who own coffee farms and depend on it for their livelihoods, but lack the right resources and knowledge to produce specialty coffee.
We work with coffee producers like Ericka, providing them with training so they can improve their cup quality, and connecting directly to the market so they can earn greater income.
