La Sierrieta – Mujeres de Giraldo
La Sierrieta is a coffee from a womens collective in Antioquia, Colombia. Last year we had a micro-lot from one of their members. Remember La Augada? That is one of the women part of this collective.
At this point in time, there are not many female farmers in Colombia. Time to make a change! (if you ask us..!) Not just because we believe its important there should be equal opportunities, but also because of the fact we simply need more coffee farmers. The average age of a coffee farmer, is getting older and older. We will need more people, if we want to keep on having great coffees.
The women of the collective will produce the coffees themselves and bring it to the station, where it will be checked on the quality. The higher the quality, the higher pay the women will receive.
What makes this coffee awesome in our opinion, is the collective brings a lot of education to these women. They are thought about better ways of processing, and are getting coached in running a business. We can’t wait to see what the future holds for these women!
