EK Balam is a newly formed association of coffee producers in the Sierra Madre de Chiapas formed in 2019 with 399 members. The vast majority of producers have indigenous roots and continue to speak a native language. Nearly one third of these growers are women who depend on income from coffee to support their families,. They cultivate coffee on farms that average just a few acres in size and are small enough for each producer to process their own coffee with their own micro-mill. EK Balam provides crucial support to small producers. In particular the association has helped producers gain access to credit and certifications, investments for basic infrastructure needs, establishing local warehouses, and operating a dry-mill. This ensures traceability and quality control throughout the post harvest process. Their collective efforts have established higher prices and more producer income to support best agricultural practices and improve livlihoods.
