 Rosalba Cifuentes Tovia, founder of Mayan Harvest Coffee, was raised in the mountainous, coffee-growing region of Bella Vista, Chiapas. The hardship she faced in her youth motivated her to move to the Bay Area to seek greater opportunity. She worked factory jobs for many years and, during her commute to work, she would stop for a cup of coffee. Rosalba began to wonder: with so many specialty coffee shops in the Bay Area, why weren’t coffees from Mexico being featured? Why weren’t there coffees from Bella Vista? In an effort to elevate the reputation of Mexican coffee and organize coffee farmers who have historically been taken advantage of by predatory “Coyote” middle-men, Rosalba returned to Bella Vista and created Mayan Harvest Coffee. Mayan Harvest works with producers with small plots of land, pays them higher prices, and registers each lot with the FDA to authenticate origin. Mayan Harvest also provides medical and dental assistance to its members. 

This coffee comes from 38 family-owned farmers in Bella Vista. This coffee is a crowd pleaser; rich with notes of dried mango, milk chocolate, and almond.
