The Red de Mujeres, or Network of Women, is a large group of female coffee producers covering five different areas of Huehuetenango.

The group is made up of 830 women and within the entire community of women there are eight different Mayan languages spoken, highlighting the diversity of culture and language in this area of Guatemala.

All oft these women have been either widowed during the 36 years of civil war in Guatemala, or were left when their husbands fled the country during the coffee crisis between 2001 and 2004.

Since Huehuetenango was one of the areas hardest hit by the crisis, many people decided to give up altogether and find work elsewhere, leaving their families behind.

With the help of ACODIHUE, these female producers have been united to market their coffee and find international buyers. ACODIHUE has also supported them in training in organic farming methods, from producing and applying natural soil conditioners to rust and pest control methods.

All our coffee is sold as whole beans, which we recommend for optimum flavour and freshness.
