The project

progetto pink coffee

In the Dominican Republic, 35% of small producers are women who don’t receive financial support for their activity. Caffè Vergnano has chosen to support the Dominican Association of Women in Coffee (ADOMUCA), a non-profit organization founded in January 2011 by a group of women who work in the coffee world.

What we sustain

cosa sosteniamo

Caffè Vergnano commits to sustain economically the creation of a roasting, grinding and packaging laboratory. The coffee used is harvested in the coffee plantation of Hondo Valley managed by women of the ADOMUCA association. The project supported by Caffè Vergnano has been selected with the support of International Women’s Coffee Alliance, an international association whose mission is to support women working in the coffee chain all over the world.

The story behind our commitment

Women play a big role generating most of the income in the family unit, which is a contrast due to the lack of opportunities and training they face within the coffee value supply chain. With this initiative, we assume the responsibility to promote gender equity and empowerment and leadership of 20 women producers with the goal to increase the
number of women impacted by the project as it evolves and grows due to demand.
