ASOBAGRI or the Association Barillense de Agricultores was founded by 20 Mayan coffee and cardamom farmers in 1989. Members come from about 30 small villages in the Huehuetenango region which is surrounded by the Cuchumantanes mountains and the Maxbai Forest Reserve. The coffee is grown under guava, plantain and banana trees. Farmers are trained in organic production methods and investment in infrastructure. They are also trained in how to operate their own warehouses and drying patios. Through this training, ASOBAGRI’s goal is to promote sustainable agriculture.
