ADDITIONAL NOTES:

APCC was established in 1982, just after the conclusion of Guatemala’s horrific, 36 years civil war in one of the worst affected regions. The group remains small: currently composed of just 28 members who come from around 13 different local families, delivering their coffee to APCC’s wet mill. All families, apart from two, belong to the Maya Achí community, and Spanish is their second language.

    The region continues to suffer the consequences of continued violence and subjugation. Villages remain remote and poorly connected to road networks. Communities lack access to many key educational and medical services. APCC decided that one way out of poverty and marginalisation was coffee and collective action.
