A new pairing between the Frida Kahlo Corporation and Bogota, Colombia roaster Amor Perfecto come together to raise awareness about women coffee farmers by combining one of the world’s most recognizable female faces with one of the most popular beverages on earth.
The Frida Kahlo X Amor Perfecto Limited Edition coffee run (that shipped in November) shows off the work of award winning and women-owned and operated farms from which Amor Perfecto gets its coffee. The packaging features some of Kahlo’s self portraits as well as other iconic imagery from her paintings.
The Frida Kahlo Corporation approached Amor Perfecto as they were in search of a coffee that was worthy of Kahlo’s status as a feminist and artistic icon.
Amor Perfecto has sourced approximately half its coffee from women farmers in Colombia. The company called them pillars of their communities and that they produce some of the best coffee in the world. Amor Perfecto saw this as the perfect opportunity to raise awareness and give power to these women farmers’ voices.
The project was inspired by the fact that while Kahlo is best known as an artist and activist she was also a known coffee lover.
