The Coffee Producers Association of Chichupac (APCC) was established in 1982, just after the conclusion of Guatemala's horrific, 36-year-long civil war. The group remains small: currently it is composed of just 28 members who come from around 13 different local families, plus around 50 'independent' neighbours who deliver their coffee to APCC's wet mill.
