Kokowagayo is the first all-womens cooperative in Sumatra. While women carry key roles in coffee production, they are traditionally excluded from economic decisionmaking. A group of bold women formed this all-womens cooperative to give economic power to female coffee growers. Kokowagayo strives to increase the role and capacity of women in coffee farm and financial management. This group of business-oriented women are paving the way for redefining gender norms in Sumatra.

Permata Gayo supports its sister cooperative with training and export services, guaranteeing consistent and exceptional quality. While the concept of an all-womens cooperative in the region is innovative in the primarily Muslim Ache region, it is a natural progression as girls receive equal education and women business leaders become increasingly prevalent.

More Info

About Cafe Femenino The story of Caf Femenino began in 2004 when women farmers from northern Peru began talking with their cooperative leaders about their desire to separate their coffee from the mens. These female members of Cecanor felt they put more care into their production, creating a superior product and wanted to know if there might be a market for womens coffee. Cecanor, having already established a partnership with Organic Products Trading Co. over the previous 10 years, collaborated with us to see how we might organize a womens only coffee for the international marketplace. Together we developed a full social program with the goal to empower female farmers using the production and sale of their own product as the vehicle to create social change. Today the Caf Femenino Program continues to have a huge impact in the daily lives of women around the world and creates greater gender equality in families, cooperatives, and communities.

Was looking for a new dark roast for our morning Americano coffee. This one nailed it, full bodied with a kick! I would highly recommend this coffee as it is great no matter how you serve it.

New coffee, new experience

We purchased a French press for Christmas, and needed some coffee to use in it. This was one of the blends we tried. We love it! It's a rich, dark, coffee and that has great depth of flavour.

Yes and it was the second batch. One of your gals recommended it to me after a major problem with a new coffee grinder I purchased. She deduced that the coffee I was using was to oily and gummed up the grinder. Unfortunately after the 4th visit and I think 3 new grinders I was forced to return it for refund. But I have to say that ECS Coffee probably has the best customer service that I have ever come across and I now won't go anywhere else and continue to sing praises to all my friends.
