These beans come from Tierra Madre, a program of women producers from a cooperative in Jinotega, Nicaragua. Through their membership, Tierra Madre women receive a premium to help obtain legal title to their land. These titles are key to accessing micro-credit loans for production and other economic activities, which provide a better quality of life for the women and their families. In addition to loans for production, the program provides credit training for women and support for improving family food security.
As one member states, "With their help I was able to legally register my house. Now I am sure that it is mine and won't be taken away from me. On my farm, I planted 5,000 coffee trees, all of the coffee is in production."
All in all, it's a pretty fine thing to be part of, especially when you don't even have to leave your house to do so. Enjoy.
Beans are best ground just prior to use. You will receive whole beans unless you indicate otherwise. If you would like your beans ground, please specify in the notes section of the checkout. Free shipping on orders of any 4lbs or more.
