Tucked in the Sierra de los Cuchumatanes, the highest mountain range in Central America, the Coordinadora de Organizaciones de Desarrollo de Concepcion Huista (better known as “CODECH”) produces some of the best Fair Trade & organic coffees not just in the department of Huehuetenango but in all of Guatemala.

The 52-year-old producer María Margarita Ramírez Marcos joined ADIPY (Asociación de Desarrollo Integral Productivo Yamanonh) as an organic coffee partner in 2008, seeking to improve its production and a fair price. Doña María Margarita uses clean water to obtain a good quality of coffee, harvesting the fruit at optimum maturation.
