Celebrating the trailblazers, the fighters, the loving, the nurturing, the teachers, the activists, the humorous, the rebels, and all women around the world.
As much as we make progress, there is still disparity and barriers that need to fall for women to be fully accepted and valued. This is a conscious and constant work that requires our full participation.
The coffee world is one of those industries where still a lot needs to be done, to change the unconscious bias against women. This is the reason why we have created a coffee set to share more about women leaving their mark in the coffee industry.
We also will donate part of the profits to the International Women In Coffee Alliance. This is a non-profit that empowers women in the international coffee community to achieve meaningful and sustainable lives; and to encourage and recognize the participation of women in all aspects of the coffee industry.
My ask to you is, that you keep sharing with your network about the work we do to increase our purchases from women farmers. That you share about the invaluable work these women are doing at origin, and last but not least, share the choices they are making by dedicating their lives to learn, work and protect the legacy of their families.

Did you know that Tico Coffee Roasters is a woman owned business?
If we haven’t met yet, my name is Mariana 🙂 I was born in the coffee lands in Costa Rica. I grew up smelling the scent of the coffee flowers that bloomed with the first rain in April and the sweet aroma of the picked coffee cherries during the harvest season that started around November every year.
That beautiful landscape and the freedom we all had, the friendships, sharing amongst family and neighbors. Eating lunch under a tree in the farm while telling jokes, and sharing that anticipated cup of coffee in the afternoon; are memories that will forever live in my mind and my heart.
This is what Tico Coffee Roasters is about. The unique experience that empowers, protects and nourishes lives from farm to cup.
