The coffee story
In 2016, some local coffee growers approached one of the founders of Aproveg and asked for support in the sale of coffee because intermediaries were buying coffee at a low price which did not contribute much to the work that was being done in the area. Back then, the only organisation that bought coffee was the Chajulense association and they were no longer receiving new members that year. The founders of Aproveg, with goodwill, began looking for organisations that could buy coffee and ended up contacting Fecceg in the neighbouring department of Quetzaltenango.
This was the beginning of the relationship between Fecceg and the Chajul farmers, based in several communities in the municipality, such as Chel, La Laguna Batzchocola, La Perla, Sotzil, Cajchixla and Xemac. Today, Quiché is one of Fecceg's strongest coffee "brands" and it the name of their roasted coffee sold in the internal market.
Guatemalan smallholders have their own wet mills, so the cherries are sorted and pulped at the farm. The parchment is also dried on farmer's patios at low temperatures. The farmers take the parchment to FECCEG's warehouse for dry milling and storage.

Average orders per roaster
Once the ordering period ends we will consolidate all coffees in a shared container. During transport, your coffee is fully insured. We will keep you informed about the shipment status.
Upon arrival of the coffee at the warehouse, you can choose between 2 delivery modes:
- Doorstep delivery: We will take care of transport to your roastery. We will provide your coffee fully insured until it is ready for unloading from the truck at your roastery.
- EXW (ex. warehouse) means that we will provide the coffee ready for pick-up at the terminal of the warehouse. You are responsible for organising transport and insurance from the warehouse to your roastery.
Currently, we can deliver coffee anywhere in Europe, except Hungary. For all European buyers, the coffee will be provided custom cleared in any case. Roasters in Switzerland choosing EXW will be responsible for customs clearance.
When calculating price, you can select your preferred currency: USD, CHF, EUR, or GBP.
