FECCEG offers a wide range of social and business services for its members. The co-op provides trainings on soil management, organic fertilizer production, bio-fertilizer production, renovation management, and agroforestry management. The members place a high importance on preserving the environment and their personal health, which is why they’re committed to organic certification and use only natural fertilizers. 

Since 2009, the organization has also implemented a project to diversify farms away from coffee monoculture to increase farmer income and provide a source of food security. Members of FECCEG now produce honey, beans, citrus fruits, bananas, avocados, cocoa, and more, and also raise farm animals.

FECCEG recognizes the underrepresentation of women in coffee production, and as a result has developed a board of nine women leaders from the cooperative who help guide the organization’s strategic direction, support initiatives to strengthen women's participation in coffee production, and manage micro-credit funds available to co-op members.
