This Fairtraade, organic certified coffee comes from Codech(Coordinator of Organizations for the Development of Concepcion Huista), located in the department of Huehuetenago in Guatemala. In 1998, the Alliance for youth Community Development arrived at Concepcion Huista, Huehuetenago, and began lobbying with the different organizations working in the municipality with the purpose of forming an entity that would represent the social, economic, envronmental and cultural interests of the municipality. This brought about Codech. During 2004, Codech received funding from Intermon Oxfam, to manage and execute the project "Coffee and sustainable development for the municipality of Concepcion Huista". With this project there was support for the small producers to produce and market organic coffee, thus preventing pollution to the environment, taking rational advantage of the existing resources and allowing them to market their coffees for better and more stable prices. Many families have benefited from better pricing as well as technical assistance, training processes, better education for their families as well as better health care.
