Who it comes from: Awal Nan is a network of women growers in Guatemala's mountainous territory of Chuchmatan, Huehuetenango. Part of a larger cooperative called ACODIHUE that was founded in 1996, Awal Nan's designated coffee is a very refined selection, comprising only 22% of the co-op's total annual production. Awal Nan is the region's native Mam language and translates in Spanish to "Siembra de Mujer".
Why it feels good: The Awal Nan network operates within the larger ACODIHUE cooperative with a focus on empowering women farmers.
