Rachel Parsons was an engineer from the North East and a founding President of the Women’s Engineering Society in Britain in 1919. She was an advocate for women’s employment rights and became a leading member of the National Council of Women, campaigning for equal access for all to technical schools and colleges regardless of gender. Rachel Parsons won the vote on who to name our La Morena women’s coffee after.

La Morena is a project coffee for gender equality. It showcases the work of 22 women farmers across Guatemala. In Guatemala, coffee has long been a male-dominate industry and gender equality remains a challenge. It is still unfortunately very difficult for women in Guatemala to compete and thrive in the coffee world. La Morena however, is produced exclusively by female farmers.
