“Life in every sip” is a favorite saying of the members of Maya Vinic. Bongo Java first purchased coffee from this cooperative 15 years ago, and our relationship has only strengthened because we’re are a dependable buyer of their organic specialty coffee at higher than Fair Trade prices. The Maya Vinic cooperative was born out of a horrific attack, the Acteal Massacre, in 1997. In an effort to recover, coffee farmers vowed to join forces and do things differently. The cooperative has since grown into a thriving, environmentally sustainable operation that relies on a democratic governance structure and shares profits among its members. Maya Vinic opened its own cafe in 2011 and has expanded its production to include organic honey.
