Volunteer Opportunities with Farmer-to-Farmer Program in Guatemala

Partners of the Americas’ USAID-funded Farmer-to-Farmer Program (F2F) provides technical assistance to agricultural producers, organizations, agribusinesses, and universities in Latin America and the Caribbean. Through F2F, U.S. specialists spend two to three weeks on specific technical assignments, working directly with counterparts in the region to address local needs.

Current opportunities:

• Coffee Industry Expert Working with the Federación Comercializadora de Café Especial de Guatemala (FECCEG). The FECCEG is seeking enter a new market at various levels of the value chain by roasting its coffee beans. A F2F volunteer is needed to initiate a coffee shop network for final consumers and connect a distribution line of organic products and companies with a social responsibility for coffee. It is expected that at the end of the assignment FECCEG will understand the operational costs for roasting beans along with an investment plan, network of potential customers, and a reference of potential distribution and supply partners. This assignment contributes to the broader goals and objectives of the Rural Enterprise Development project by supporting small, medium, and large holder companies in one of Guatemala’s most lucrative value chains, coffee.

• Professional Coffee Taster Working with Asociación de Productores de Olopa (APOLO). APOLO coffee is expanding to new markets but lacks knowledge of how to market their coffee because they do not know what kind of qualities or potential their coffee has. A F2F volunteer is needed to train APOLO staff in cupping processes as well as the techniques and parameters to determine the quality of the coffee as well as the best barista techniques. It is expected that at the end of the assignment APOLO will have a reference for cupping and the correct barista methodology to continue replicating the process. This assignment contributes to the broader goals and objectives of the Rural Enterprise Development project by supporting coffee holder’s companies in one of Guatemala’s most lucrative value chains, coffee.
