This Chocolatey, fruit-forward Guatemalan coffee stands out from the rest
Creamy, balanced, complex
An All Around Crowd-Pleaser
This year's harvest from the ACODIHUE coop is one of our favorites. Creamy body, balanced acidity, and complex notes of ripe melon, black cherry, and bittersweet chocolate make for an excellent cup of Guatemalan coffee 🇬🇹
Manos de Mujer comes from the ACODIHUE cooperative in the mountainous territory of Chuchmatan, Huehuetenango. The cooperative was founded in 1996 after the conclusion of several development projects in the area by the European Union that grouped farmers together into associations.
About the Producer
This coffee is produced entirely by women members of ACODIHUE's network of women growers, which is referred to locally as Awal Nan (Siembra de Mujer) in their native Mam language. Only 22% of ACODIHUE's annual production goes under the designation of Café con Manos de Mujer, which represents a refined selection of the cooperative's coffee.
Improving Producers Lives
The ACODIHUE cooperative focuses on women growers and has put forward efforts to improve each of the farmer's lives. ACODIHUE is also focused on supporting the next generation of coffee growers, and has a generational advocacy initiative to promote farm inheritance. Through the program, youth participate in trainings on organic fertilizer creation, organic production, agronomic best practices, post-harvest management, marketing, and sales
