The incredible Boza Sisters of Finca San Antonio Amatepec are ambitious change-makers carving a path for themselves and the next generation of coffee producers.
With a focus on shade grown specialty coffee production through sustainable methods, the farm has been certified by the Rainforest Alliance.
The three sisters: Alexandra, Daniella, and Karla, grew up going to the farm but were not involved with the day-to-day activities. Part of this, they believe, had to do with their gender. Since the 1970s, Finca San Antonio Amatepec was run solely by their father, Carlos. Over time, breaking with tradition, he agreed for the sisters to become more involved.
They oversaw the new implementations of different Rainforest Alliance strategies, looked after the harvest, and managed more of the marketing and relationship building with buyers. Most importantly, they finally took the necessary steps to process their coffee independently. They believe that this has been the most important change for their farm to date.
Karla is one of the recipients of the 2019-2021 Leadership Equity and Diversity (LEAD) scholarship program. LEAD is aimed at increasing diversity of leadership within the global coffee community by enabling access to professional development resources to people from underrepresented or marginalised communities. We are super proud of Karla and the amazing leader she is becoming within the coffee industry!
