This certified fair trade organic coffee was grown by small-share farmers in the Huehuetenango region, an area in the western highlands of Guatemala. The farmers are all members of Asociación de Productores de Café Diferenciados y Especiales de Guatemala (ASPROCDEGUA), a producing organization that offers assistance to 664 coffee growers from small farms. The average size of an ASPROCDEGUA farm is just 2 hectares (or just under 5 acres).
The smallholders of ASPROCDEGUA are from several different municipalities within the area, including San Marcos, Cuilco, Colotenango, Santa Bárbara, San Sebastián Huehuetenango, Sipacapa, San Antonio Huisa, Cantinil Union, San Pedro Necta, Todos Santos, and Concepción Huista.
