About La Promesa Coffee

Woman holds coffee beans

Every bag of La Promesa Coffee is a promise of environmental, social and economic sustainability for the small-scale women farmers who produce it. Grown in the highlands of the Huehuetenango region of Guatemala, every delicious cup demonstrates our commitment to income diversification through entrepreneurship. 

Your purchase of La Promesa Guatemalan coffee enables families struggling with hunger and poverty an opportunity to achieve lives of true self-determination and dignity. In fact, La Promesa farmers earn more than 3.5X higher net incomes than many coffee farmers in the region due to their high quality coffee and the fair business practices we promote.

La Promesa coffee is sourced for Heifer by Thrive Farmers. This certified B-Corp has a radically inclusive economic sourcing model that pays farmers significantly more than typical prices.
