About the Beneficiary
International Women's Coffee Alliance
The mission of the International Women's Coffee Alliance (IWCA) is to empower women in the international coffee community to achieve meaningful and sustainable lives; and to encourage and recognize the participation of women in all aspects of the coffee industry.
The IWCA has over 20 chapters worldwide that seek to tell the story of women in coffee. Each chapter is set up and run by local women to address needs specific to their community. Projects have included: changing outdated laws preventing women from registering coffee in their own names (instead of a male relative), applying for grants for education and health screenings, developing trainings to improve coffee quality and increasing per-pound price, and promoting eco-tourism.
Equator has a long relationship with IWCA, including our own Vice President Maureen McHugh representing on their board for many years.

We partnered with Mūr by Ayca founder Ayca Kilicoglu to design a custom coffee bag for Holiday Blend and collection of limited-edition merchandise. Ayca is a San Francisco-based designer, illustrator, and educator who is inspired by the repetition, simplicity, and complexity of the human experience.
Ayca's intricate and vibrant illustration brought to life our belief that people, like the components of the Holiday Blend coffee, are better together.
