The Asociación de Productores Cafetaleros Solidarios de San Ignacio (APROCASSI) formed in 2000 as a group of farmers intent on protecting their land against encroaching mining companies. Over the 20 years since, the group has evolved into a quality-centric coffee producing collective, with a particular focus on certified coffees.

The organisation also actively encourages and supports income diversification for women and incentivising coffee production as a viable vocation for youth – they have initiated a “Grupo de Jovenes” (youth group) where young coffee producers receive agricultural training, and operate a coffee shop called Saja in San Ignacio where the women’s group prepares and sells the coffees from their own farms.
