About
Asproguate
Cooperative

Beneath high elevations and beauty of the Acatenango Valley in Guatemala, the Asproguate cooperative features the collaboration of nearly 2,000 small holder producers from Acatenango, San Martin Jilotepeque, Coban and Atitlan. The cooperative is committed to providing market access to smallholder farmers in the region.

The high elevations of the region bring out unique flavors in the Asproguate coffees. At around 2,000 meters above sea level, the coffes tend to bring out bright and clean flavors. This wet and dry seasons of Acetenango create an ideal microclimate and allow for traditional sun drying methods to be used. So many of these passionate farmers operate on small farms on less than 3 acres of land. For example, María Roberta Julaj has been working for several years with the Asproguate Cooperative, giving her access to markets and buyers in the international market to support her four children.
