COLOMBIA CULTIVADA – ASMUCAFE
Cultivada is an attempt to put some fairness and equity into our supply chains. The ICO reported that around 1/5 of the world’s coffee farmers are women, and up to 70% of the labor in the production of coffee is from women. However, representation and acknowledgement is sorely below these figures. Cultivada is a mark on our menu that will always represent coffee grown by women.

More About This Coffee
ASMUCAFE stands for Asociación de Mujeres Agropecuarias de Uribe, an organization of women farmers and landowners in El Tambo, a municipality within Cauca. The women’s mission as an association is to improve their families’ quality of life through coffee farming and to contribute positively to their community by working together and sharing resources, knowledge, and support. “Our work is determined by our values such as responsibility, honesty, commitment, respect, solidarity, and competitiveness,” they say. A special price premium is added to this coffee which is used towards projects aimed at female empowerment in the association.
