Located in the mountainous region of Huehuetenango, UPC is De la Gente’s largest partner cooperative, with over 150 members. Farmers tend to their plants year-round, managing steep inclines that make accessing, caring for, and harvesting their plants a challenge. 40 members of the co-op hold organic certification and the coffee we offer is a blend of their beans.
