“Making women’s coffee work count” – this is what inspired Queen's Crown, a microlot that is solely produced and processed by women. The coffee is named after the crown given to new mothers in Rwanda and acknowledges women’s contribution to the coffee community. The lot's model is based on transparency and equality, where the producers receive fair wages and access to social programs for themselves and their families. Not only do the producers earn a fair price for their coffee, the farm donates 10% of its proceeds to community projects, such as daycare facilities at each coffee washing station, and livestock and kitchen garden projects that are contributing to the health and economic sustainability of their community.
