THE PEOPLE BEHIND MOM’S COFFEE

MOM’s partners with Mayorga Organics to provide 100% organic and directly-traded coffee beans!

  • Based in Rockville, MD, Mayorga works directly with farmers that use sustainable farming practices, including tree cover for migrating birds, encouraging biodiversity, and pollinator protection.
  • Our coffee beans are traceable to the farm where they’re grown.
  • Monitoring beans from planting to harvesting allows our partners to ensure the highest quality coffee.

We focus on our relationships with the people harvesting our coffee.

  • Our farmers are our partners and their economic well-being is a priority.
  • Eliminating middlemen helps to keep prices low while providing an income for the farmers.
  • Responsibly traded, MOM’s coffee works to alleviate systemic poverty in Latin America.

Co-op partners include:

FINCA MONTEALEGRE FAMILY FARM
