What I find striking is the degree to which coffee farming in Nariño is men’s work. There isn’t a single coffee-related activity that is primarily women’s work. In fact, only two of the select coffee-related tasks included here even involve a majority of women: coffee milling and drying. Wet-milling is a joint activity in 43 percent of households and women’s work in 12 percent, meaning that in a majority of households (55 percent), women are involved in wet-milling. Drying coffee, similarly, is women’s work in 17 percent of households and a joint activity in 46 percent of households, meaning that in 63 percent of coffee-growing homes, women are involved in drying coffee. Most women in coffee-growing households, in other words, don’t plant coffee or prune it or even harvest it: only 49 percent are involved in harvesting, according to the data here.
