ASPROGUATE is a relatively young organization, having been founded in 2014 by 100 organic coffee growers in the Acatenango, Coban, and Chimaltenango regions. The members of ASPROGUATE set out with the express purpose of showing that growing coffee organically is not only better for the environment, but is more economically sustainable and leads to higher incomes. The majority of ASPROGUATE's farms are women-owned, and nearly all of ASPROGUATE's members are of indigenous Kaqchikel and Tz'utujil ethnicity. In 2016, ASPROGUATE opened a new headquarters in San Martín Jilotepeque.
