What can you tell me about this deliciousness?

This microlot is part of the Coordinator of Organizations for the Development of Concepcion Huista’s (CODECH) community microlots. The CODECH is comprised of 10 different organizations in search of development programs for Concepcion Huista, a municipality of Huehuetenango. Projects include workshops on organic farming, teacher development, women’s rights, gender equality, and household development, among others. What this means is that the general manager of CODECH, Gregorio, is taking strides at this farm and others in the area to become more environmentally conscious, renovate farms, and meet the growing demand for organic products. The Fair Trade Organic certification helps in the effort by creating independence from transnationals which produce fertilizers. This coffee is fully washed, sun dried, and grown at 1900m.
