HIGHLIGHTING WOMEN, QUEER AND BI-POC LEADERS
Modrn Medicin is a brand with a mission of highlighting Women, Queers and Bi-Poc in the community through intentionally selected ingredients and partnerships.
Women in Wellness
In addition to making Ayurvedic wellness accessible, working with queer, women and/or bi-poc leaders in the community is one of Modrn Medicin's missions.
Our cafe is part of a woman owned collective called Maya Moon. Maya Moon is an icon for ceremonial cacao and GF/Vegan desserts. We source our ingredients in the cafe from places like Goddess Ghee. Goddess Ghee is a Mama owned & women run small business in the heart of Appalachia that makes incredible herbal infused, consciously crafted Ghee.
We feel beyond blessed to work with all of these intelligent, creative and wonderful leaders!
Women in Coffee
We pull the thread of women power a layer deeper by sourcing our coffee from Queer, Woman owned roasters Ultreya Coffee. We use beans from woman produced coffee farms in Mexico and Brazil.
On pour over we have an incredible Honduras Gea.
In Greek mythology, Gea (pronounced hay-uh) is the goddess of the Earth and the mother of all creation. Neumann Kaffee Gruppe (NKG) exporter Becamo created this regional blend from the coffees of more than 400 women producers and gave it a name that, it says, “embodies the determined spirit of women."
Women producers — whether because a partner has passed away or migrated, or out of a pure passion for coffee — absolutely seize the opportunities that coffee presents, say our colleagues at Becamo. They rise before dawn to care for children and elders and tend to housekeeping, all before heading to the fields. Women also create opportunities and resources for one another, lend a hand during harvest, offer advice and bring notable attention to the details in their drying and milling.
Per Becamo: “Women have also shown their ability to take a rough patch of land and turn it into a successful coffee farm, in part by planting timber and fruit alongside coffee crops, to increase shade and soil moisture and to encourage microclimates that bring complexity and quality to the cup.” This coffee acknowledges and pays tribute to their work.
