Cooperativa La Voz Que Clama en el Desierto or The Voice Cries Out in the Desert, is located on the shores of Lago Atitlán in the Tz’utujil Maya community of San Juan La Laguna, established by 20 farmers in 1977 under the shade of a ceiba (the tree of life). This family-based cooperative with over 600 members dedicates itself to growing high-quality organic coffee and securing a sustainable future for the community and its cultural traditions. Profits from the sale of their organic certified beans are reinvested in capacity building and family support services.
