• The organisation was founded on 18 March, 2021 with the objective to enter into the international market in order to get a better income for the producers and so to improve their living conditions.

• The members are mostly young people who see their future in the production of high quality coffee – instead of migration.

• The main problema the cooperative is facing is the lack of funds for the harvest. In the last season 2020/21 the cooperative could have sold 6 containers but because of lack of money for gathering this volume, the cooperative only sold 2 containers. Therefore, the cooperative has become a founder member of CAFÉ NAYAL which beside supporting their members in sales also tries to organize funds for the harvest gathering.

• The mayority of the members live close to the natural reserve „Lagos de Montebello“ which is near the border to Guatemala. This mountain region is covered by virgin forests in elevations of 700 to 1,400 meters. Because of the elevation and the forests it rains the whole year and it does not become very hot. Therefore, they do not plant big and dense trees for shadows, but among the pines they plant banana trees which allow them to get a second income. For the autarc economy of these families this is an import second economic base.
