From the Producer: The Federación Comercializidora de Café Especial de Guatemala (FECCEG) is a non-profit organization that was founded in 2006 with the purpose of supporting small coffee producers to overcome the enormous challenges of price fluctuations and risks of the international coffee market. Today, as a federation, we have managed to bring together 15 producer organizations, associations, and cooperatives that associate 1,150 men and 350 women, all of them small-scale farmers, dedicated to the organic production of specialty coffees, honey, brown sugar, and cocoa. Our partners are distributed in the Guatemalan Altiplano, in the departments of Chimaltenango, Huehuetenango, Quiché, Sololá, San Marcos and Quetzaltenango. This is a land known for its majestic mountains, dotted with volcanoes.
