Coffee by Women Whole Roasted Coffee Beans 250g
In the Dominican Republic, the female coffee growers of the ADOMUCA association produce an Arabica, 100% grown by women. They stand for strength and dignity, they have cultivated this coffee with the utmost care to obtain the finest beans. Also, within Rombouts, women have an essential role in roasting, packing and controlling the quality of the beans. We thank all those involved for this coffee.
Our “coffee by women” is Fairtrade coffee exclusively produced by the female coffee growers operating as part of the Dominican association, ADOMUCA. These ladies are the heads of their households and manage their plots single-handedly. ADOMUCA has been a member of the International Women’s Coffee Alliance since 2011 and is chaired by Maria Isabel Balbuena, the manager of the FEDECARES cooperative, which supports growers.
ADOMUCA, in cooperation with the Rombouts/Malongo Foundation, is also organising a project to diversify agroforestry coffee plots by planting avocado and banana bushes, which provide plenty of shade. This project is part of a global replantation policy launched after the coffee rust episode in 2014, which had decimated the plots.
The program aims to guarantee the long-term viability of coffee farms by ensuring that the families have a secure supply of food and creating additional income, preventing these women from becoming totally dependent on coffee production.
In the cup expect a unique, intense aroma, releasing sweet notes of honey and dried fruit.
Perfect for both espresso and filter brewing.
