UTM Global Impact Projects: Guatemala

Operation Groundswell’s “Brewing Justice” program goes deep inside the original Banana Republic where a lush fertile land conceals bitter fruit. From the bustling markets of Guatemala’s capitals to the smallholder farms of the highlands, we’ll explore Guatemala’s incredible landscape where land and livelihoods are intertwined and coffee and malnutrition go hand-in-hand. We’ll meet with producers in their fields, talk shop with retailers and get our hands dirty on community-based initiatives. We’ll immerse in highland culture and see how coffee gets from seed to shelf.
