Anchor Coffee Roasters searched our suppliers for woman owned and operated coffee plantations which empower women and offer opportunities for growth in their countries. What we found was an amazing coffee and group of suppliers in our Malawi Fair Trade Mzuzu, which is extremely limited. However, Anchor Coffee Roasters was able to get a few bags of this fantastic bean.
“I want to empower my fellow women to do what I am doing -- to have a good house, to eat good food, and to educate their children. I want my rural village to become a town. I produce Women’s Coffee because I love coffee!”~ Linly Msyali Mkalira, Mzuzu producer whose coffee contributed to this AAA/AA lot
Mzuzu Coffee recognizes many of the challenges of facing women coffee growers in the region is land and tree ownership. In a combined effort between men and women in the region, the Mzuzu Women's Coffee Policy was created to support these efforts. Our coffee is traceable to women farmers who own their own coffee fields. Proceeds are paid directly to women who reinvest in their coffee growing efforts and into educational, health care and other empowering projects in the region.
