The first group of farmers who later became Gumutindo started working together in 1998; in 2003 they became a fully established cooperative union. There are 10 primary societies, who work to promote the production by their members of consistently superb organic coffee, to market it advantageously and thereby to improve their incomes, livelihoods and communities.
