This coffee is sourced from women members of ACODIHUE's network of women growers in 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. 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.
