Meet Maricela, who has farmed for over sixty years and owns twenty-eight hectares of land, twelve of which are planted in coffee. Our staff writer, Emily McIntyre, had the chance to meet her in Peru this spring. She is not a member of the Peruvian Café Feminino foundation, but a stellar example of the kind of woman we support and want to enable toward equality through our coffee purchases. You can partner with us: when you purchase our Peru Feminino coffee anytime in the month of August, we will give $.50 a pound to the foundation.
