We here at Big House Beans are proud to introduce our newest Coffee With A Cause, the Guatemala La Morena. Currently, in Guatemala gender inequality remains a very difficult challenge especially in the largely male dominated coffee industry.
This year's La Morena microlot has been grown and produced by four female farmers from Huehutenango: Teresa Alvarado, Aleida Herrera, Sara Lopez, and Yuris Yojana Villatoro.
In showing our support and inspiration for the global rights of women, we have looked into our own backyard to see where we can do our part. For every pound of La Morena that we sell, we are donating $1 to Shepherd’s Gate women’s shelter. Shepherd’s Gate is a local non-profit that has been a beacon of hope, helping women and children escape cycles of addiction, homelessness and abuse since 2001.
