In 2005, a group of six women members of the CESMACH co-op, all of whom managed and worked their own farms, banded together in an effort to integrate more of the co-op’s women members into educational workshops about coffee cultivation, and to highlight the contributions these women were making to the management and labor on their family farms. The CESMACH Women Producer offerings comprises hand-picked and sorted coffees grown on farms that average 4 hectares or less. There are 32 communities represented by these coffees, from the municipalities of Ángel Albino Corzo, La Concordia, Montecristo de Guerrero, and Siltepec. The 2014 premium paid on the coffee went toward the construction of vegetable gardens. Recently they are hoping to start investing the premium into women's health programs especially because of the high prevalence of cervical cancer in the community, a health initiative became a focus among the group to prevent and combat the disease.
