We source and roast women cooperative coffee in support of a more nurturing world.
High grade arabica beans from women run smallholder family farms that support women equality, empowerment and leadership.
We roast in small batches to develop balanced savory flavors with accents of unique complexity.
Our coffees are medium roast, round in body, and low in acidity.
We are Lauren Korba, Cristina Deere and Enzo Emerson Korba-Deere of Korbadeere Coffee Roasters, established in 2015. We roast our coffee at the Niwot Market in Niwot, CO. We have a background in urban farming and holistic culinary arts. We enjoy sourcing beans from women owned small holder family farms. Through their sustainable agricultural practices their beans are nurtured to taste unique and delicious. The farms we source from are supported by or have created programs that offer equality and entrepreneurship opportunities for women. We share our connection to coffee with you through the story of our beans while developing flavors that best represent the nature of their origin through our roasting process.

Honduras ~ Women Cooperative ~ COMUCAP
COMUCAP is a Cooperative established in 1993 by women for women seeking economic independence to support their families. The founders began a radio show to voice opportunity for impoverished women who didn’t own land, many being victims of domestic violence. These women realized the root of the problem was economic insecurity and began to look for ways to earn their own money. Banding together the women of COMUCAP were able to purchase one hectare of land and planted coffee. They now successfully own and farm over 37 hectares.
Thanks to COMUCAP many women have been able to rise above poverty, purchase their own land and create economic stability and freedom for themselves, while breaking the cycle of abuse and inequality.
Tasting notes: Graham Cracker, Cinnamon, Milk Chocolate. Smooth Body/Mild Acidity/Medium Roast
