Supported Causes

Story

Las Rosas Women’s Coffee Project represents three-hundred farmers in the Women’s Association of Western Huila, Colombia. The project is a collaboration between this organization and our importing partners, RGC, highlighting the work of women in this region while reinvesting revenues toward initiatives they have identified as particularly impactful. The project has been going on for eight years, providing resources such as agricultural education, access to a rotating credit fund that is independently owned and operated by the women, psychological support to women affected by domestic violence, digital media workshops on gender equity and

leadership, and training opportunities in political empowerment, delivered with a community participatory approach. In parallel, coffee quality and production efficiency have been strongly prioritized, resulting in the production of nearly 2,000 exportable bags of coffee in recent seasons, scoring favorably enough in the cup to qualify as Specialty according to the official Specialty Coffee Association scoring system.

This particular selection comes from Caturra and Castillo coffee trees grown at altitudes ranging from 1,700 - 2,000 meters above sea level. The coffees are processed on the women’s own farms, reinforcing the value of the program’s long-term education efforts. In the cup, we taste milk chocolate, orange, and honey.
