Bolivia Café Femenino
brown sugar ~ cocoa ~ orange
A rich body, with fairly bright acidity.
Founded in 2004, Café Femenino is a true success story - it was created by a group of 464 female coffee producers in Peru, to create a more equitable trading platform in the coffee growing industry, and now it’s in nine countries all over the world, and supports thousands of women farmers! To put it in their own words, they’ve ‘developed a never-before-existing market for exclusively women-produced coffee to serve as an important vehicle for social change and the empowerment of poor, marginalised women coffee farmers. We’re so proud to be involved in such an incredible movement.
Since joining Cafe Femenino in 2009, these female Bolivian farmers now have their names included on the titles to their land, meaning that the land remains with each individual if she is abandoned or widowed; providing protection from further poverty for herself and her children. All women have also been given educational opportunities and the chance to have their voices, ideas and opinions heard at the highest level of leadership.
What our team says"To kickstart the day! Rich bodied, milk chocolate and a nod to the female-only cooperative running the show." Heather
We work closely with farms worldwide to make sure that coffee farmers are paid a fair price, through Fairtrade and our own Direct Trade certifications. Working hard with coffee farmers to improve their lives and the lives of their families.
We maintain long term relationships with our carefully selected coffee farms, to provide the stability they need to plan for the future. The added bonus? Coffee that improves with every single crop, as their farming practices and equipment improves.

We, at Wogan Coffee, have been lovingly hand-roasting speciality, ethical, sustainable and traceable coffees since 1970. In our third generation, and a wholly independent family company, you can find us rooted in Bristol; the same city as when Mr Wogan established the business over fifty years ago. Laura and James, grandchildren of the bowler hatted gentleman, now have the ropes firmly in their grasp; James as our resident Q Grader in the Bristol Roastery Headquarters, and Laura in London.
