About this coffee
Mexico Mayan Harvest Women's Group is sourced from 168 family-owned farms located in communities within the municipality of Bella Vista in the state of Chiapas, Mexico. Rosalba Cifuentes Tovia, who was raised in the Bella Vista coffee community, has dedicated herself to helping producers with small plots of land (averaging 5 acres) earn a better price for their coffee. Rosalba ensures traceability for her communities coffee by personally exporting the coffee directly to the Bay Area.
Through Mayan Harvest’s system of traceability and improved premiums returned directly to the women, this coffee recognizes their work and gives them financial empowerment.
The Mexico Mayan Harvest Women's Group has layers of chocolatey sweetness paired with a silky body and balanced acidity. We really enjoyed lighter roast styles that brought out notes of vanilla, pear, apple, nougat, semi-sweet chocolate and brown sugar. Darker roasts were equally delicious, displaying notes of graham cracker, toasted hazelnut, molasses, maple syrup, dark chocolate and clove. This is a great all-around coffee that works well in many brew methods and roast styles. We recommend it as a balanced and sweet batch brew that can hold up to milk and sugar or as a creamy single-origin espresso.

Is your coffee FDA approved?
Yes, all of our coffee is FDA approved.
Can you really grind my coffee the way I want it?

Why is your coffee so inexpensive if it's true gourmet coffee?
We offer our premium coffees as ground and whole bean, roasted or green, from select farms for a lower price when compared with other premium gourmet coffee offerings. We offer these rare coffees at a great discount. After we import we roast the beans ready for you to enjoy. Although we could charge a lot more for our coffee, we choose to take another approach. We sell on volume. By selling more coffee for less profit, rather than less coffee at higher profit, we actually come out even either way. With this in mind, we choose to offer our coffee for less, which means we move more inventory so the coffee is always fresh and newly picked from the farms, plus you benefit because you save money on premium gourmet specialty coffees.
What farm does your famous brand coffee come from?
We source the beans from many tiny family farms. Some at high elevation with shade grown coffee fields that flourish on the edge of the mountains and some at medium elevation with full sun. The workers hand pick every coffee cherry, and hand wash them too. Matter of fact, they do it all by hand right down to the drying of the beans in natural sunlight with beans spread over wooden planks. The same way it was done hundreds of years ago, an old world method. No automated picking machines or careless processing. Hand selected beans, among the best anywhere in the world. We are sure you can not get coffee of this quality for the price we offer it anywhere else. We focus on environmentally friendly processing that is good for the surrounding habitat.
