Our newest coffee from Mexico is 100% woman owned and produced!
Hailing from the Zongolica region of Veracruz, Mexico, "Woman Power Zongolica" is a cooperative of 20 individual woman producers who worked in tandem to present us with this communal lot. We're honored to play a small role in presenting the artistry these women demonstrate in the cup.
A word from the importer:
The region is deeply influenced by the rich, ancestral heritage of its people, most of whom identify as part of the Nahuas indigenous group. Across generations, the Nahuas have shared their language and wisdom about plants, rivers, animals, mountains, the planet and the universe through storytelling by their elders.
Coffee farms in Zongolica are agro-ecosystems, meaning the farms take into account the impact of the farming well beyond the farm and work to balance the energy and nutrients to preserve the region’s biodiversity. Intercropping and forest conservation are among the practiced tactics.
The coffee was pulped with hand-cranked de-pulpers, washed and dried on patios for 15 days. Twenty producers contributed to this lot, and each adhered to the same practices on her own farm.
We love that these women are partnering with the Earth to bring forth its fruit in a way that is conscious, caring, and sustainable. We love this coffee, and hope to have it around for a while!
