Tierra Maya, from the land of Chiapas


tierra maya coffee

The story behind this coffee is all about the farms, the people and the love. When we choose this coffee to add it to our products we knew that this was a keeper. “Tierra Maya Coffee” comes from the indigenous people Federación de Sociedades Cooperativas Indígenas y Ecológicas de Chiapas (FESICH) from Chiapas Mexico.

From the region of Angel Albino Corzo, with an altitude of 1,100 to 1,800 meters above sea level, the FESICH was founded by farmer groups from Tzotzil, Tzeltal, Mame, Chuj and Zoque. The cooperative has over 3,300 members, primarily indigenous farmers and their families. Each producer does their own wet milling and dries the coffees on their own patios before delivering the coffee to the cooperative. Since the founding of FESICH they have established a renovation program, built a nursery that now houses over two million coffee plants and offers training programs for leaf rust treatment. In addition, producer members have access to small producer financing.

Tierra Maya is considered as a FAIR TRADE organic coffee, in which you can find and unlock the notes of juicy cranberries, vanilla, apricot, dark chocolate and balanced acidity. Sound great, right?
