Good supply chains deliver tasty coffee. This is certainly the case with a collection of micro-lots that just arrived courtesy of the Federación Comercializadora de Café Especial de Guatemala (FECCEG), an umbrella organization that helps producers with small farms gain access to the international market. Adrián Hernández produced one of these lovely micro-lots on his 6-acre farm called La Galera near the village of La Pinada in the municipality of Santiago Chimaltenango within the department of Huehuetenango. This is the first time Adrián has seen his coffee featured as a micro-lot. He has worked up to this goal for the last three years through his membership in Cooperativa Integral de Ahorro y Crédito Café Responsabilidad Limitada (COPECAFE). COPECAFE has focused attention on training producers on the best organic practices to manage their farms and diversification projects. Adrián has put her training in action, making his own organic fertilizer and diversifying his farm with citrus and banana trees, and also cultivating Habanero chile peppers. Adrián has his own micro-mill to process harvested cherries. First, he floats the cherry in water to remove less dense and damaged beans. Then he depulps, ferments, washes and dries the coffee to 11 percent moisture. At this stage, FECCEG steps in to support Adrián with transportation, warehousing and cupping analysis, and later provides the preparation for export. FECCEG has worked hard to ensure coffee traceability so that Adrián receives more income for improved quality. Increased earnings from coffee sales help Adrián strengthen his family’s livelihood.
