From the maker: We buy this delicious organic Fairtrade Guatemalan coffee from Falcon Coffees, a local Sussex importer, also based in Lewes.
The coffee is produced by Red de Mujeres, a large group of women coffee farmers in Huehuetenango in Guatemala. It’s a diverse community, with eight different Mayan languages spoken. Many of the women in the cooperatives have been widowed as a result of the civil war; the husbands of many others left to seek work elsewhere during the coffee crisis in 2001 when low prices for coffee often did not even cover the cost of production.
Asociación de Cooperacion al Desarrollo Integral de Huehuetenango (ACODIHUE), founded in 1996 with the support of the EU and government of Guatemala, is a coffee producing organisation that is working to bring the female producers together and support them to find international buyers. ACODIHUE has also trained the farmers in organic farming methods, including organic fertilisers and rust and pest control, as well as working with them to increase the quality of production.
