Honduras Cooperativa Raos (Women Producers)

14.00

This Honduras is the first coffee we have acquired in our efforts to support women coffee producers and those farms or cooperatives that are working for women's empowerment. We are very excited about this coffee.  In addition to the program premiums these women receive for this lot, Cooperativa RAOS has many very active educational support programs open to all members. Gender assemblies are held by female members in order to discuss the women's needs, as well as ways of increasing equity within the group and community. "Gender equity means that women and men have the right to equal and fair access to the use, control, and benefits from the same goods and services of society, as well as to decision-making in the areas of social, economic, and social life, as well as politics." This is Cooperativa RAOS's mission statement with regards to gender, a philosophy that the organization supports through the development of training farms, as well as integrated farm-management programs, and in increasing access to these programs as well as organic-farming support to all members, including the female growers.

Tasting Notes: Mild Citric acidity with plenty of sweetness and a surprising amount of juiciness for a Central American coffee. The finish is more mild, leaving a slightly nutty aftertaste.
