Each purchase of our coffee ensures the resources needed to continue helping the indigenous farmers of Guatemala break free of the economic, political, and historic bondage that has enslaved them for so many years.
Historically, these Mayan descendants have not been allowed to roast and export their own coffee into a finished, value added product. When they have to export their coffee as a raw commodity, the much higher profits flow through to those who roast that coffee into a value added finished product.
However, recently, Rotary International and some church communities provided the farmers with their own commercial roasting facility. And now, with your help, the Maya Ixil will be able to process their extraordinary coffee from seed to cup, earning them 30-50% more of the specialty coffee dollar.
