Passport Coffee & Tea

Guatemala San José Poaquil HRNS

Sold out

Limited Supply-

San José Poaquil is a municipality in the department of Chimaltenango in Guatemala. Like many other indigenous towns in Guatemala’s Western Highlands, San José Poaquil suffered during the violence of the early 1980s. It was not until recently that this area of coffee production had traceability. For many years these farmers would deliver their cherries to mills in Antiqua as the label could fetch a higher price.

In January 2015, HRNS  began a project to improve living conditions for 1,000 smallholder coffee families in Chimaltenango to promote entrepreneurship and create a framework for change in which farmers and producers can better assess their situations, risks, opportunities and develop a vision for improvement.

Farmers were used to selling cherry, and HRNS has worked with them, helping them to process to parchment, for which they can get a higher selling price. HRNS also offers agronomy trainings and various courses.
