Women in Coffee?
Women in Coffee is a key Caffè Vergnano social responsibility project. Launched in 2018 in collaboration with the International Women Coffee Alliance (ICWA), it aims to sustain small communities of female coffee producers. The project is in constant evolution and supports initiatives that promote female empowerment, inclusion, and respect.

Empowering female coffee producers
Every year, together with the ICWA, we select a real-world project to support the role of women in coffee plantations. In 2019 we commenced our first fundraising campaign and launched a micro coffee brewery in Valle Hondo, Santo Domingo, in a community of 20 female coffee producers. Despite the Global Pandemic, our support never stopped, and we are now starting a new campaign – the building of a library for the villagers of Cual Bicicleta, in Marcala, Honduras. It’s fantastic to help the community with this project that combines culture and sharing.

A training project to teach diversity and empathy
In 2020 we partnered with Funtasia Digital, a training project for teachers and students in Italian public schools. The goal is learn new ways of building social and emotional well-being and nurturing positive relationships, with a special focus on diversity and empathy between boys and girls.
