From Balam Coffee Project - A community lot, coordinated by the remarkable Rosalba Cifuentes Tovía. A group of 110 women from the community come together to try and sell their coffee as one. Rosalba explained, due to the extreme low prices of coffee, violence in the region and rise of asylum seekers and refugees have lead the majority of men in the community to leave. Up to 80-85% of the women are widowed or single mothers, and in some cases both.
This has been picked, processed, cared for and roasted by women only.
