Women Producers Coffee Collection

Strong coffee from strong women grown on small-scale farms in Kenya, Sumatra, and Guatemala.

Guatemala Juana Escobar Gaspar 

The Sierra de los Cuchumatanes in western Guatemala – the highest mountain range in Central America – is home to thousands of small-scale coffee farmers who belong to the Poptí, Mam, and Q’anjob’al branches of the Mayan family. Formed in late 1990s, the Coordinadora de Organizaciones de Desarrollo de Concepción Huista (CODECH) comprises eight base cooperatives and associations. Juana Escobar Gaspar, a member of one of the base co-op ADIPY, grows coffee on less than four acres at an altitude of 1,635 meters that allows for the slow development of the intense, fruity flavors that are the hallmark of coffees from the famous Huehuetenango region.

Kenya Decimah Mwayi

Until a few years ago, almost all coffee grown on small-scale farms in Kenya was absorbed by cooperative societies and brought to the national auction through marketing agents, making it nearly impossible to purchase from individual farmers. Earlier this year, the exporter Kenyacof connected us to Decimah Mwayi, the owner of Kambiri Estate in western Kenya's Nandi Hills region. Decimah purchased two acres in 2005 and received 5,000 seedlings from her father, who had started the family estate in the 1960s. Although she had moved to Nairobi to study and work, she fell in love with coffee during the first flowering season and has since expanded her estate. 

Producer name: Decimah Mwayi

Location: Kambiri Town, Malava Constituency, Kakamega County, Kenya
Cultivars: mostly SL-28, Ruiru 11, Batian
Farm size: 2.8 hectares (7 acres)

Flavor notes: sweet tomato, citrus, dried fruit, red wine, round acidity

 

Sumatra Nurmawati

In 2016 Colectivo was introduced a single-farmer lot from the Gayo Highlands of northern Sumatra for the very first time. It was such a success that we made a point to meet the producer, Nurmawati (who goes by a single name like many Indonesians), during our visit to the Ketiara cooperative in early 2017. We learned that she takes the utmost care of her coffee trees and is considered by her peers to be an expert in pruning. We have continued to purchase from Nurmawati through Ketiara so that we can continue to highlight her exceptional coffee.

Producer name: Nurmawati
Cooperative: Koperasi Pedagang Kopi (KOPEPI) Ketiara
Location: Bies Mulie Village, Central Aceh Regency, Aceh Province, Sumatra, Indonesia
Cultivars: bourbon, typica, caturra, catimor
Farm size: 2 hectares (4.9 acres)
Altitude: 1,200 meters (first plot), 1,450 meters (second plot)
Flavor notes: plum, dark chocolate, clove/cinnamon, creamy body, nice acidity
