Equator notes: Once again this year we are happy to present Nicaragua Tierra Madre. This coffee was grown in the hills above the coffee town of Jinotega, on farms surrounding the Cerro Datanlí-El Diablo cloud forest reserve. The farmers are members of Aldea Global, a cooperative we have been working with for many years. Aldea consists of over 10,000 members that work in various agricultural sectors, including 4,000 in coffee.
For the seventh year in a row we are participating in a special program managed by Aldea Global, called Tierra Madre. For each pound of unroasted coffee Equator purchased through the co-op, we pay a small premium into a fund that covers administrative, legal and logistic costs related to women’s land rights issues.
Many women in the co-op farm land that they do not legally own. Although the government supports land rights of women conceptually, the resources are not always available to process titles. The Tierra Madre fund has been set up to
help transfer land title to the name of woman who actually cares for the property.
Fortunately the expenses are relatively small; costs include paying a lawyer to draft the paperwork and transportation to the court to file the documents.The rewards however are great, as this process empowers women in a new way and allows them to do what they wish with their land.
