We know, the best coffee in the world begins with women.

Women are the Kebon difference.

Today we are highlighting one of our spectacular producers, Ellen Prentice. Ellen is the kind of woman who makes us proud to be drinking our Kebon coffee☕️

While women coffee producers are scarce in Latin America, Ellen Prentice, an Agricultural Engineer, started farming right out of college.

She helped her dad renovate an old coffee plantation that was abandoned and turned it into a specialty coffee farm that has won the internationally renowned Cup of Excellence Awards.

Finca de Dios is a boutique Specialty Coffee farm located in the mountains of Fraijanes Guatemala. Ellen meticulously nurtures the farm using sustainable practices and ensures that all the processes are to the highest standards to produce high quality coffees.

What do we mean when we say ‘scarce’???

According to the International Women’s Coffee Alliance roughly 19% of coffee producers in Central America are female. Want to learn more?
