There are 664 contributing members, 394 of whom have organic certification. The members own small farms, an average of 2 hectares each, on which they plant coffee as well as other crops for diversification. This particular coffee has been separated from the main offering because all of the contributors are part of the women's association within ASPROCDEGUA.
This association is not a formal sub-co-op, but the premium earned for their lots goes toward organic fertilizer distribution to the women farmers, among other benefits. Last year the premium was used to purchase dairy cows for the women, which were distributed to both augment the household nutrition and to give them better access to organic matter from which to make their own organic compost.
