Peru Café Femenino
Milk chocolate ~ blackcurrant ~ battenberg
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.
Our particular coffee is grown by 800 women, all part of six associations within the CECANOR Co-Operative. Due to the number of farms involved, there’s quite a range of varietals used in this coffee - there are your usual Bourbon, Catuai, Catimor and Typica, and then also the significantly rarer Gran Colombia and Villa Sarchi. Villa Sarchi is actually a natural mutation of Bourbon, that was created in a Costa Rican village named, you guessed it, Sarchi - it grows really well under shade, and at higher altitudes.
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.
