More about Equal Exchange Org Womens Farmers Ground Coffee

Well rounded and velvety smooth medium roast and ground coffee with low acidity, sourced exclusively from women in farmer co-ops. By purchasing this fairtrade coffee, you are empowering farmers in isolated co-operatives to build more sustainable and secure livelihoods.

NORMA GAEDA PAIVA MEMBER, SOPEXXCA CO-OPERATIVE, NICARAGUA Norma Elena is a pioneer farmer. “I am an organic coffee farmer and have been a member of SOPEXXCA for 8 years now. When I joined I was lucky to fi nd that there were a few other women involved so we could help one another. When I started there were fi ve and now there are 283 women farmers. In the beginning, all the coffee was put together and we didn’t separate it by gender. However later we began to separate the coffee harvested by the women for Equal Exchange. We got a good price plus an extra women’s premium for this coffee which was a real motivator for the women. We were always just housewives before, even though we were also working in the coffee fi elds. If people asked us if we worked, we would say no, no we don’t have a job because we never received a salary or any money for our work. The point is we didn’t value ourselves, we didn’t know how to. We want to give value and visibility to the important work that women do and which has traditionally been ignored. We no longer want to be forgotten or ignored.”

Serving Suggestion

Boil fresh water, add one dessertspoon of coffee per person, pour in the water, stir and leave for 3-5 minutes.

As above, but be careful not to let it stew.


100% Fairtrade organic coffee certified to international Fairtrade standards
