At first we were just a group of farmers in an unregistered association, but we made quick progress. In 2002 we obtained organic certification for most of our coffee. In 2003 we were registered as a new co-operative union, with the aim of making sustainable improvements to the livelihoods of our members by selling their fairtrade and organic coffee in the most advantageous markets. The same year we obtained our own export license for the first time. In 2004 we were certified as a fairtrade small producer organisation under international fairtrade standards.
In 2005 we bought our own premises and began to operate as a genuinely independent farmer business.
