This coffee is sourced from family-owned farms organized around the Java Mountain Women’s Coffee cooperative, which operates in the mountain villages of West Java, Indonesia. Women in rural Java account for 60 percent of the labor input for the Java coffee industry but they earn less than 10 percent of the revenue generated from coffee and own less than 1 percent of the land utilized for coffee production. To empower change, Java Mountain Coffee, buys coffee from women producers and reinvests profits in a Women's Empowerment Innovation Fund. This fund is designed to equip female producers with farm management and quality control training; certification assistance; and a nursery program where women will have access to seedlings of coffee, citrus, bananas, timber and rubber trees necessary for diversified farm renovation. This lot is the first coffee Java Mountain Coffee has exported to the United States.
