Why love it?
This coffee comes from 'Cooperativa del Sur del Cauca" (COSURCA), straight from the southeastern Colombian highlands. It is the result of the hard work of an amazing group of 438 women, whose coffees are not only certified Fair-Trade & Organic, but are also certified by the Cafe Femenino® program - which means that when they’re not harvesting world-class coffee, they’re actively working on projects to improve their whole region! Currently, they're implementing a kitchen improvement project that improves the health and safety of the homes in their community.  This space is simply too short to do justice to all the amazing work this program is doing, so please visit https://coffeecan.org/our-work/colombia for more details!

In addition to the Fair-Trade, Organic, & Cafe Femenino® price premiums, Ethos contributes an additional 5 cents per lb of green coffee purchased to the Cafe Femenino® Foundation, which funds the community projects (chosen by women in the Co-Op).
Why do we believe in this initiative? (1) Women get paid directly for their product, (2) get help acquiring legal title to the land they farm, and (3) have the opportunity to take on official leadership roles within their Cooperative and get a budget for projects to improve their community - for many, this is likely the very first time they have real decision-making power and a voice to shape their future!


Recommendations
Extremely versatile and delicious in a variety of methods! Medium roasts were our favorite, as they best highlight the natural sweetness and fruitiness of the beans.
