Huehuetenango is a region of the Sierra de Los Cuchumatanes in the South-Western region of Guatemala, and is considered to be one of the best regions for coffee cultivation in the country. The high elevations of the mountain range allow the coffees to develop the distinctive flavour characteristics for which they are renowned. Much of the harvesting in this area is done by hand; a slow, practiced method that nonetheless allows for greater control over the quality and consistency of the product. The farmers in the Todosanterita area are members of the Cooperativa Todosanterita, through the Coop these groups seek to provide farmers and local communities with better living conditions and services such as drinking water, clinics, schools, libraries, and modern technology. They also try to achieve better prices for the farmer's produce, and to provide agricultural education and financial backing.
