International Women's Day
Women are deeply woven into the fabric of coffee production. They are coffee producers, farm and mill workers, lab employees, coffee buyers, exporters, importers, roasters, warehouse workers and baristas. They hold up half the coffee sky, yet are rarely featured in publications, their achievements lauded not frequently enough. Yet they labor on, often improving their own communities alongside their own advancement.
In this year’s International Women’s Day, we feature and give recognition to one such woman: Epiphanie Mukashyaka.
