Guatemala Huehuetenango Women's Produced Lot - Fair Trade Organic


Guatemala Huehuetenango Women's Produced Lot - Fair Trade Organic

from 11.75

We are very excited to be involved with the distribution of this particular coffee. One of our suppliers and CODECH (Coordinator of Organizations for the Development of Concepcion Huista) came together in support of the women of Huehuetenango. This coffee is grown and processed by CODECH (the same co-op that produces the Huehue we normally have), which is a co-op of coffee farmers in the northeastern highlands region of Hue Hue Tenango. One of the main objectives of CODECH is to encourage the participation of women in the Guatemalan workforce and economy, which can be difficult due to local culture and politics.

This particular lot of coffee is grown 100% from farms owned or managed by women. Half of proceeds will go directly to the women who contributed to this lot and the remaining half towards a Women's Health workshop, with a focus on Concepcion Huista’s high infant mortality rate.  Some of the other projects and workshops CODECH holds for its farmers are:

  • Organic farming workshops
  • General agriculture workshops
  •  National and international commercialization workshops
  • Teacher development workshops
  • Women specific workshops
  • Political incidence
  • Women rights and gender equity
  • Self esteem
  • Leadership
  • Medical attention

An additional premium was paid for this coffee, which will be given to a program chosen by CODECH to promote health in women's lives.

This coffee has a sweet aroma that is brighter with a creamy body and is fruity with flavors lemon, dark chocolate and cocoa.
