Background:

Women Producers

In attempt to recognize and promote the work women do growing and producing coffee around the world, the Women Coffee Producers project was established in order to highlight organizations and associations of women producers in various countries. The program aims to address the widespread wage inequity that women experience by adding a gender-equity premium on top of a base price; this premium is paid directly to the growers for use in any manner they choose.

Women Tierra Madre

Tierra Madre is produced exclusively by 125 women coffee producers in Jinotega, who receive an additional premium paid individually to them beyond the quality premium.

Aldea Global promotes the sale of Coffee produced by Associated women under the Tierra Madre label. This coffee is a blend from multiple women-owned farms.

Cherries are picked when fully ripe, depulped, fermented overnight, washed, and then placed on raised beds and patios to dry.
