Manos de Mujer comes from the ACODIHUE cooperative in the mountainous territory of Chuchmatan, Huehuetenango. The cooperative was founded in 1996 after the conclusion of several development projects in the area by the European Union that grouped farmers together into the associations. This coffee is produced entirely by women members of ACODIHUE's network of women growers, which is referred to locally as Awal Nan (Siembra de Mujer) in their native Mam language. Only 22% of ACODIHUE's annual production goes under the designation of café con Manon de Mujer, which represents a refined selection of the cooperative's coffee.
