Description

We learn more about this coffee from various women-owned, smallholder farms in Colombia:

“Fundación Agraria y Ambiental Para el Desarrollo Sostentible (FUDAM) is a 300-member association of organic-certified (and Rainforest Alliance–certified) growers that was founded in the year 2000 by just seven producers who shared a vision of sustainable agriculture as well as environmental protection and development. This group of smallholders lives in and around the small municipality of La Unión in Nariño, where the terrain differs greatly from in other coffee-growing areas like Cauca: Instead of walking up from the town to the farms, as elsewhere, here the towns are at such high elevation that the farms are typically lower elevation, surrounded by high peaks and rough road.

“Organization leader Raquel Lasso has established a subgroup for women, called Manos de Mujeres, focused on empowering projects as well as gender-queity in payment for women growers in the cooperative.”
