Our first Mexican offering of the season comes from an indigenous producers cooperative in Chiapas called Bats’il Maya, organized in 1993 as a response to neglect and abuse by the traditional intermediaries in the coffee supply chain.
Located in the north-central highlands of Chiapas in the Sierra de Chiapas y Guatemala, in the town of Chilón. As suggested by the name, this main ridge extends to Huehuetenango in western Guatemala, some 200km away.
The coffee is the work of roughly 300 farming families producing a number of varieties across an average elevation of 1100 meters.
I love every coffee we have tried from Jimmy Java. Coming from NYC and having all types of boutique coffees available to us as well as the BIG BRANDS this is far superior to them all. The beans are so fresh and the roasts are true to their origins I do not have to question it they are the real deal....WOW I am so happy we found Jimmy Java.
I love this coffee! Lovely hints of dark chocolate fig and papaya! Jimmy Java has so many excellent choices of dark roast whole bean! My new favorite!
