De La Gente Coffee
De La Gente Coffee works closely within the coffee farming communities in Guatemala. The company offers several tours that welcome visitors to local communities and open up a world of adventure, immersion, and exchange while creating economic opportunities by supplementing family income.
De La Gente provides coffee farmers and local businesses with training and support that enable them to create profitable, marketable products, thereby allowing them to improve their quality of life and help their communities in an environmentally and economically sustainable way.
Tours are based from Antigua, Guatemala and have a range of options for travelers that fit a range of interests. Travelers see a different side of Guatemala while spreading their tourism dollars into rural communities. De La Gente also runs a volunteer program with the farmers; they have a close relationship with the communities they support through volunteering and tourism.
