Guatemala La MorenaRegular price $14.00 Save $-14.00
We are thrilled to offer La Morena as a platform to showcase the work of women farmers across Guatemala. In Guatemala, it’s been incredibly difficult for women to compete and thrive in the coffee world due to gender inequality and historically coffee has long been a male-dominated industry.
Genuine Origin started the La Morena program in 2016 featuring four female producers. In four years, we are proud to be importing La Morena coffee from 23 woman-owned farms!
With volcanic peaks and mountains across the country, Guatemala has unique coffee growing regions. The mountain ranges help to create the country’s unique micro-climates. With the rich soil left behind in the wake of volcanic activity, Guatemala has the ideal conditions for coffee production!
Uganda RwenzoriRegular price $14.00 Save $-14.00
Our Rwenzore Natural was produced at Kisinga Washing Station which started operations in 2016. This lot was hand-picked by the Bukonzo Farmers Group in the Kasese District. Later the coffee was dried on raised African beds in poly tunnels.
The Bukonzo Farmers Group is comprised of people who are members of the Badonzo tribe. Farms tend to be small averaging only about 2 hectares. The work on these farms is generally done by hand. Farmers work together to process and market their coffee, an approach known as “share farming”. Working as a united group has helped to improve processing and increase quality control.
The Rwenzori Mountain Range is along the Western Uganda Bordering the Democratic Republic of Congo. The snow-capped peaks and glaciers produce many rivers, while the high altitude, fertile soil with plentiful rainfall is perfect for growing Arabica. Farmers grow the coffee in share of banana trees. Many farmers also produce cassava, maize, beans and groundnuts for local consumption and additional income.
