These farms are small, averaging 2 hectares, and in addition to coffee many of them plant bananas, citrus fruit, avocados, guava, and cassava.

The members of ASPROCDEGUA are from several different municipalities within the area, including San Marcos, Cuilco, Colotenango, Santa Bárbara, San Sebastián Huehuetenango, Sipacapa, San Antonio Huisa, Cantinil Union, San Pedro Necta, Todos Santos, and Concepción Huista.
