Mexico Zongolica coffee is also called WPZ — "Woman Power Zongolica!" — by the 20 women who grew and produced it.
WPZ comes from women in the Zongolica region of Veracruz, Mexico. The region is deeply influenced by the rich, ancestral heritage of its people, most of whom identify as part of the Nahuas indigenous group. Across generations, the Nahuas have shared their language and wisdom about plants, rivers, animals, mountains, the planet and the universe through storytelling by their elders.
Coffee farms in Zongolica are agro-ecosystems, meaning the farms take into account the impact of the farming well beyond the farm and work to balance the energy and nutrients to preserve the region’s biodiversity. Intercropping and forest conservation are among the practiced tactics.
The coffee was pulped with hand-cranked de-pulpers, washed and dried on patios for 15 days. Twenty producers contributed to this lot, and each adhered to the same practices on her own farm.
These beans are sourced by 20 female producers, who embody the spirit of the Goddess of Earth. To continue to pay respect to the women who allow us to enjoy the wonderful mythical gifts of their land, we proudly call this roast, Embody.
It is with great honor that we are able to roast the beans of their work, and support the autonomy of female farmers and producers, ethically and genuinely. These women all have their own stories of life, joy and sorrow. Journeys of family, dreams of entrepreneurship, passion for coffee, love of the land, or even death of a spouse, brought them together.
This is a microlot, meaning it is somewhat limited in availability. Make sure to get yours today!
