This Fair Trade Coffee benefits more than 2,300 small coffee growers and their families.
Most of these small producers are Mayan ancestors and they dedicated their productions in memory of their ancestors by continuing to grow and harvest their coffee in harmony and religious respect for the environment. Times are difficult for these farmers due to the low prices of coffee. Social and economic development has been almost impossible. They have now formed an association of small coffee producers in order to provide support to the cooperative to overcome the problems of coffee production, administrative development and to export fair trade coffee.
Fair Trade coffees assist farmers with things such as commerical services, credit and training to increase the management and productive capacity of its affiliates and of the men and women involved in this development project.
The coffee is Certified Organic Shade Grown by The Organic Crop Improvement Association (OCIA) as well as being a fair trade coffee.
Beneficio is produced under shade trees. The beans are hand picked and processed by the coffee growers themselves, to be finally dried under the sun.
This brew will produce an exquisite aroma, a good and abundant body, and an enduring and pleasant acidity.
