Small producers: ASOPCE (Association of Special Coffee Producers of Huehuetenango) is a small farmers association in Huehuetenango dedicated to providing support and representation to smallholder producing families of Huehuetenango. The 450 member families have small lots mostly ranging from less than a hectare to 5 hectares, spread along the remote mountain communities of Huehue. Individual farming families cultivate Caturra, Bourbon, Pache, Catuai, and San Ramon varieties on their farms, at altitudes ranging from 1500-2000 meters above sea level. Throughout each harvest season, ASOPCE supports member families with coffee education and technical assistance. Through ASOPCE, producers have gained access to technical assistance for managing their farms with the best agricultural practices. Using materials like coffee pulp to make organic fertilizers has helped reduce the transportation costs associated with purchasing fertilizer from afar, and at the same time, creates an abundant source of fertilizer that ensures better yields and quality. ASOPCE partners with an export company called BICAFE, which has a dry-mill facility powered by 250 solar panels.
