This bean represents 200 women members of the co-op. Women in Nicaragua can own the title to their own land, which is not always the case in Central America. It is a result of the progressive reforms of the Sandinista revolution and has been maintained under subsequent governments. The co-op is led by a charismatic leader, Fatima Ismael, who has been helping the farmers for four years and is inspired by an organization where 30% of the membership is women coffee farmers. Her vision is “to create a worldwide network of women who buy and market this coffee, sending a message to these rural farmers that they have options, that they can create what they want for themselves and their families.”
Café de los Muertos liked this coffee before we even heard the story. Now that we know the story, this coffee will always be sold by us as long as it is available. Smooth chocolate and apricot flavors are to be found.
