New in our line of discovery series, we present this medium roast from the women's coffee growers coop of Santo Domingo in Huehuetango.

The enterprising women farmers of Cafe de Mujeres de Santo Domingo produce high-quality coffee in the community of La Libertad, Huehuetenango

The movement to create the Santo Domingo cooperative began under the leadership of Orfa Constanza, who together with local women saw an opportunity to improve their lives and socioeconomic status through organic coffee production. Forming the cooperative wasn’t easy— the idea was off-putting to their husbands at first, who were accustomed to a culture of patriarchy in rural Guatemala. Over time, however, the women each gained title to their own parcels of land, either through their husbands or through inheritance.

The journey to achieve specialty coffee production was challenging for the small community of La Libertad, but they have proven themselves to be profoundly ambitious and determined, and now produce exceptional lots for the International market.
