Description

The Chiapas terroir

In your cup, Maya Vinic has a classic Chiapas profile, with medium body and crisp acidity, balanced by deep, sweet flavors of caramel, dark chocolate and spices. At LpB – La p’tite Brûlerie, our roasting process develops notes of hazelnut, nougat and milk chocolate. If you love your coffee black, be it espresso or drip, this one’s for you! The roast is dark, but without being bitter.

Our partner, the Union of Maya Vinic Producers Cooperative, is made up of some 500 coffee-producing families located in 38 highland communities in the municipalities of Chenalhó, Pantelhó and Chalchihuitán, in Chiapas, Mexico. Each member owns on average one hectare of land and produces about 400 kilos of coffee beans per year. Inspired by the traditions of their ancestors, Maya Vinic operates with respect for language, local culture, traditional forms of self-governance, and reverence for Mother Earth.

Surviving tragedy and the creation of Maya Vinic

Our partners thought up the Maya Vinic Cooperative in the aftermath of the Acteal massacre (1997), where 45 members of their community, including women and children, perished in a shooting linked to political struggles in the area. Three years later, with the birth of Maya Vinic, they were able to lay the foundations for new life in the community.

Striving to offer coffee of consistent quality, grown with care and respect for their natural resources, the cooperative offers its growing members regular education and capacity building activities focused on sustainable farming techniques and the importance of a strong social economy.
