Celebrate Women in Coffee with Caffè Vergnano

Celebrate Women in Coffee with Caffè Vergnano

Did you know that you can make a difference in the lives of women, just by enjoying your morning espresso? Every year, our partners at Caffè Vergnano work to enhance and promote the role of women in coffee plantations around the world with their Women in Coffee Project. Read on to learn more about this special initiative and how you can support through your local Eataly.


Founded in 2019 in partnership with the IWCA - International Women's Coffee Alliance, the Women in Coffee initiative supports concrete projects aimed at enhancing and promoting the role of women on coffee plantations.

According to a 2018 report from the International Coffee Organization, 25% of coffee farms are led by women, and 70% of the workforce on coffee plantations is female. However, despite the considerable contribution within the coffee supply chain, Carolina Vergnano and the IWCA still saw a strong gender gap when it came to education, credit, and trade - and thus, the Women in Coffee project was born! Now, Vergnano and the IWCA work together to support female sustainability projects around the world, highlighting shared values of empowerment, inclusion, culture, kindness, sustainability, and of course, coffee.

This year (2022), social inclusion is the goal of Women in Coffee, which will support the construction of The Family Rural Library for the inhabitants of Cual Bicicleta, in Marcala, Honduras. The library will be open to the whole community: a place where children can study, learn and have fun and allow women to meet and express their full potential.

This March, we're inviting guests to enjoy an espresso martini for a cause at our wood-burning Italian grill restaurant Terra at Eataly Boston.
