About the farm
Huehuetenango is a municipality in the western highlands of Guatemala, running up to the border with Mexico and encompassing a lot of microclimates across its hills and valleys. Members of the Todosantarita cooperative are based on the hills of the Sierra de los Cuchumatanes, the highest non-volcanic mountain range in Central America. Spanish is spoken here, but the dominant language is Mam, highlighting the Mayan ancestry of the area.
In 1986, 17 people created a group that was the precursor to Todosantarita and with the help and expertise of Fedecocagua, Todosantarita cooperative was formally set up 6 years later. We have been working with them for years, buying their coffee as part of a Huehuetenango SHB, but as we kept noticing their profile standing out, we decided to showcase them as one of our regional selections to highlight the great work they are doing. The Cooperative now consists of 131 members.
Recent challenges have been presented to the group in the form of increased costs of fertilisers, up to three times pre-pandemic costs, as well as a drop in available pickers in harvest times. The higher C market price driving up prices has somewhat saved them this year, though the future is very much under watchful eyes. There is a deficit of young workers coming through, as it is easier to earn better money abroad and send it back to support the family. The cooperartive having a relatively young age of 50, and a 20% member representation between 22 and 35 is a heartening sign.
