The coffee is the culmination of a transformative Heifer project in partnership with THRIVE Farmers. Sourced from Huehuetenango, Guatemala
Supporting Small-Scale Farmers
We are proud to source La Promesa Guatemalan Blend coffee from the hardworking women of the ACODIHUE Cooperative. Through the sale of their coffee, farmers are creating better financial futures for their families and communities. We work to establish and develop strong community-based organizations (i.e. farmer associations and cooperatives) that emphasize the empowerment of women and youth.
The coffee is the culmination of a transformative Heifer project in partnership with THRIVE Farmers. It allows coffee growers to improve their sustainable production, collaborate with other farmers and local organizations, and connect to wider markets. Since cooperative members have a buyer waiting for their product, the farmers are not as affected by the volatile commodities market. Your help is key to all of this success.
Our Heifer Guatemala team works within the project to help small-scale farm families improve their local environment and manage their natural resources. We work to establish and develop strong community-based organizations (i.e. farmer associations and cooperatives) that emphasize the empowerment of women and youth.
