About this coffee

A group of 124 female producers have curated a beautiful blend of washed SHB EP FTO coffee with the assistance of COMAL (Asociación Civil Comercializadora Maya Alternativa). With their support, the producers strive to improve the quality of the coffee and the sustainability of their farms by creating organic fertilizer, participating in workshops on entrepreneurship and financial education, as well as tending to the roots of the coffee plants for health and productivity.

Each producer individually processes and dries the beans on their own small terraces, equipped with pulpers, fermentation tanks, washers and parabolic dryers. COMAL collects the beans from the producers and delivers them to the FECCEG dry mill in Quetzaltenango, where the quality team analyzes each batch. Depending on the quality, the coffee is either stored separately and sold as a micro lot or combined with other coffees from the same producer organization and quality group.

ORIGIN INFO

The Farmers

For every bag of COMAL Mujeres sold, we pay a bounty to support a mobile medical and dental clinic. The clinic organized by the exporter UNEX treats more than 300 producers every week of operation. The premiums from each bag of COMAL Mujeres go directly to supporting women's health. UNEX sat down with a doctor to find out how to most effectively promote women's health in the communities where they serve. The premiums from these sales are also used to provide vitamin tablets that contain nutrients that are underrepresented in their diets and promote a healthy and long life. Coffee is the main source of income for the producers, but they also grow honey, fruit trees, corn and beans. They plant trees to preserve biodiversity, protect groundwater reserves and maintain a variety of flowers and plants - another positive side effect is that this attracts bees and increases their honey production.
