Created by Jenny Zambrano after an earthquake hit her village in 2016, Café Pionero has created direct-trade relationships between remote villages in the Andes Mountains and co ee roasters in Canada. This has resulted in better pay to the farmers, training and education seminars on sustainable farming practices, and employment opportunities (including some of the only paid jobs for women in Jenny’s village).
Café Pionero aims to create lasting relationships between rural communities and coffee roasters, ensuring fairly traded coffee year after year.
