Supporting Women in Coffee & Tea Communities
Project2Love is our mission to support coffee produced by women in global coffee communities from ‘seed to cup.’ We accomplish this through buying, roasting, selling, and promoting their coffees and other products in the U.S. market. Project2Love seeks to partner with small coffee farms, co-ops, and estates, through education, social responsibility, and sustainability projects.
Project2Love is proud to offer Nicaragua Las Marias, located high up in the mountains in Nicaragua. A wonderful single Estate origin coffee by producer and owner Gabriela Figueroa de Hueck. We have visited the farm twice and have recently started a Project2love “books for education” project. The children and adults now have books to read threw this project. We will continue to look for opportunities to serve our coffee and tea communities.
We currently have one Project2Love Assam Black Reserva Tea from Finca Los Andes in Guatemala

Project2Love is a joint venture that brings together the dreams of two passionate women, Mery Santos and Renee Planje, who strive to enhance the lives of women in global coffee & tea communities. Our goal is to create a channel for distributing Women’s Coffee & Tea as well as promoting other products that enable them to earn a living and feed their families.
Women’s Harvest Cafe de Costa Rica
We are partnering with the International Women’s Coffee Alliance (IWCA) – Costa Rica Affiliate for our first line of Women’s coffee. This coffee is harvested by the members of the alliance in Costa Rica. ‘Women’s Harvest’ coffee is supporting a home for young girls that have been abused and/or abandoned. Part of our sales will go back as an additional contribution to the IWCA chapter in Costa Rica to support the shelter.
Guatemala Cafe de Mujer
This coffee is produced and cultivated by a Co-op of smallholder women farmers. The coffee is strictly high grown at 1500 meters in the highlands of Huehuetenango, Guatemala. This coffee is part of a project that supported certifications for sustainable practices for women in the coffee value chain resulting in fair-trade and sustainable coffee. The Co-op has members who represent over nine linguistic Mayan languages. This coffee has an intense acidity, rich chocolate notes and full body.
El Salvador Finca Nombre de Dios
Nombre de Dios farm is run by fourth generation coffee growers, Maria Elena and her two sisters. They carry on the tradition of their grandfather, who planted the farm in the 1860′s. Located 1500 meters above sea level, in the highlands of Alotepec-Metepan Mountain Range of El Salvador, the coffee produced here has tasted of citrus fruit, sweet apricot, and sweet Belgium chocolate. The growth and development of the community is a priority for the family farm; they have donated land where a school clinic, football field, and church were built. They are also members of the IWCA and have received Cup of Excellence awards in the last 5 years.
We are members of these groups:
