BAKERS CHOCOLATE. CHERRY GARCIA. HONEY NUT.
Majomut was founded in 1983 after farmers in the area began to organize around organic production. The roughly 1000 members of Majomut belong to the indigenous groups Tsotsil and Tzeltal, and named the cooperative after the area, which means "place of the birds" in the native Tsotsil language.
On average, the cooperative members farm one hectare of land, counting on their families and their neighbors to help each other during the harvest.
A principal challenge for the cooperative is Roya. Given the cooperative's organic certification, the members have created organic fungicides based on a mixture of copper and sulfur. Now the cooperative is working with Roya resistant varieties that are local to the area, like Garnica. They are also experimenting with non-local but proven varieties like Oro Azteca and Costa Rica 95 to see how they fare in the region with regard to cup quality and productivity.
This washed process coffee is made up of Bourbon, Typica, Mondo Novo, Garnica varieties. It’s smooth, rich, sweet, chocolate and fruit notes will leave you wanting more on these crisp spring mornings.
