Smithsonian Bird Friendly, Organic, and Fairtrade

Guaya'b means "mutual support" in the indigenous Mayan language Popti. Nearly all of the 600 members of this 34 year old cooperative are of Mayan descent. The cooperative invests in sustainability, as demonstrated by their many certifications:Smithsonian Bird Friendly, Organic, and Fairtrade. The coffee is grown under lush shade canopies which create habitats for native and migratory bird species. This year's harvest is a stunner: syrupy chocolate with complex stone fruit accenting the cup make for great brews and amazing espresso.
