This coffee is part of Capricornio Coffee’s “Women in Coffee” project:

“Our idea is aligned with the International Women’s Coffee Alliance and its Brazilian Chapter, that is, to empower women in Brazil and in the international coffee community to achieve meaningful and sustainable lives; and to encourage and recognise the participation of women in all aspects of the coffee industry, from seed to cup.

In these two regions and in these 69 cities, Capricornio Coffees offers support so that women in coffee conduct good agricultural practices at their estates, does quality control for coffees produced at these farms as well as finds opportunities and commercializes these coffee lots, adding value to the hard work these women have to produce specialty coffees.”
