This fairly traded Guatemala coffee comes to us from ASPROCDEGUA (Asociación de Café Diferenciados y Especiales de Guatemala) in Huehuetenango. This producers organization was founded by a master cupper named Noe Quintero and has 664 contributing members. The producing members own small farms, averaging 2 hectares (less than 5 acres) in size. In addition to coffee, these producers also grow other crops for diversification including bananas, citrus, avocado, guava, and cassava.
