Every year around this time we reflect on the year that’s about to end and what we are thankful for. As we approach the holiday season, we are excited to present our 3rd annual DLG Thanks campaign.
Is it just us or has this year flown by? A few highlights from 2016 include:
Exporting coffee from all 5 of our partner cooperative for the first time ever!
Sharing coffee and Guatemalan culture with thousands of visitors from all over the world: travelers, students, roasters, coffee enthusiasts, and locals.
The 2016 Coffee Congress that brought together over 15 leaders from all 5 of our coffee cooperatives to discuss the challenges and opportunities they face.
Connecting with great people doing incredible things in coffee and business at the SCAA and SOCAP conferences
Strengthening our relationships with each cooperative, getting to know the members better on cooperative visits, and learning from each other how we can make 2017 even better than 2016.
All of these highlights have been made possible by each and every one of you. This year we want to give special thanks to the people who make all of this possible. Here goes:
First and foremost, we want to thank the coffee producers we work with here in Guatemala.
You all inspire us to keep working towards a more inclusive and equitable coffee industry. Your passion and drive motivate us to grow and do our job better every day than we did the day before.
Thank you to the wider DLG family.
Your constant support, kind words of encouragement, donations to support De la Gente Projects, coffee purchases, visits, and sharing of our story with others means the world to us. We couldn’t do what we do without your generosity and big hearts.
Thank you to all of our roasters & partners.
We are proud to work alongside such a great group of people who share our common values inclusion, transparency, sustainability, and investing in producers at origin to ensure that everyone benefits from the coffee that we all love.
