Three years running now, we're again proud to offer this amazing washed Guatemalan, which cups rather like a natural. It's certified organic and fairtrade and helps a lot of women at the beginning of the supply chain! Boom.

Red de Mujeres - Network of women' is a large group of female coffee producers covering five different areas of Huehuetenango. The group is made up of 830 women, within the entire community of women there are 8 different Mayan languages spoken, highlighting the diversity of culture and language in this area of Guatemala.

These women have been either widowed during the 36 years of civil war in Guatemala, or were left when their husbands fled the country during the coffee crisis between 2001 and 2004. 

With the help of ACODIHUE, these female producers have been united to market their coffee and find international buyers. ACODIHUE has also supported them in training in organic farming methods.
