To say we’re excited to be roasting this coffee is an understatement. Sourced from 168 family-owned farms located in communities within the municipality of Bella Vista in the state of Chiapas, Mexico, this coffee is the labor of love of Rosalba Cifuentes Tovia. Rosalba, who was raised in the Bella Vista coffee community, has dedicated herself to helping women producers with small plots of land (averaging 5 acres) earn a better price for their coffee. Rosalba ensures traceability for her community’s coffee by personally exporting the coffee directly. She also concerns herself with the small details like being sure to pull samples without piercing the producers’ bags, which has eliminated the cost of replacing damaged bags. These efforts allow producers to earn higher prices and reinvest in better agricultural practices and improve livelihoods for their families.
This is only the second year that the Mayan Harvest Women’s Group has exported coffee. 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 and the ability to continue agricultural traditions long held in the Bella Vista community.
