Guatemala Manos de Mujer comes from the ACODIHUE cooperative in the mountainous territory of Cuchumatan, Huehuetenango near the border with Mexico. Manos de Mujer is grown and produced by indigenous women who are now the owners of their land as a result of widowing from a civil war and men migrating into the United States. ACODIHUE certified the women producers as Manos de Mujer (Women’s Hands) to recognize the hard work of these women and their contribution to both their households and to the national economy. One of the major benefits for producers belonging to ACODIHUE are the investments that the cooperative makes into the community. ACODIHUE recently launched a vegetable gardening skill building program where women can learn to farm their own vegetables to feed their families and also sell to local markets for extra income.

Only 22% of ACODIHUE's annual production goes under the designation of Café con Manos de Mujer, representing a refined selection of the cooperative's coffee. The ripe Manos de Mujer coffee is picked by hand during the harvest season, which begins shortly after Christmas and lasts until nearly Easter. The coffee is grown at an average elevation of 1500 meters above sea level. The most common varieties are Red and yellow Bourbon, as well as Typica and Caturra.

2023's harvest of Guatemala Manos de Mujer is a balancing act of complexity and approachability. Possessing a deep well of flavor, this coffee is excellent across the roast spectrum.
