Family Coffee is a project of Missioners Caminando Por La Paz - Guatemala..The project was founded by Maryknoll Mission Father Thomas Goekler ,MM. Maryknoll affiliates continue various projects in Guatemala City including an Education Program which places marginalized youth in local schools and universities. Although we receive donations from a small core of dedicated donors we continuously strive to find helping individuals. When these individuals purchase our coffee they provide materials for our tutoring sessions that we offer to the children we serve. The parents of many of these poor kids can not afford to offer then any other educational opportunity.
The sale of Family Coffee provides funding to our partners "Productores de café la familia" The group grows this premium coffee in Yauner, San Pedro, Copan, Honduras. They grow the coffee at an altitude of 1,400 meters (1,593 feet) an excellent altitude for growing coffee.
