De la Gente works with coffee farming communities to create economic opportunity that improves the quality of life of their families and communities. You can meet farmers and artisans and work alongside them in their homes, as you create your own souvenir, not to mention memories to last a lifetime. Take a tour led by a smallholder coffee farmer to see where your coffee comes from, learn to make pepian (the national dish of Guatemala) in the home of a local 'chef' or try your hand in making a number of other artisan goods.
