We have recently adjusted our grind options. With that in mind, we wanted to offer this primer so that you can choose the best grind-style for your preferred brewing method.

Whole Bean-- While we are happy to grind your beans, your coffee will stay fresher longer if you grind it as you go. There are many great home grinder options out there and many are surprisingly inexpensive.

Drip-- This is a medium grind that is the most versatile. Brewing methods using drip include home coffee drip machines, pour-overs (like Hario), Chemex, and AeroPress.

Espresso-- This grind is generally used for espresso makers. This includes home machines and stove-tip espresso pots. The grind is the most fine and is optimized to work with a high pressure extraction system.

Coarse-- Coarse is for percolators, french press, cold brewing, and sometimes AeroPress. Coarse is the biggest/loosest grind and enables water to move more freely steeping coffee for extraction.

All of the above, while generally true in the industry, also should be adjusted for preference. Feel free to experiment and please contact us if you have questions and we will be happy to work with you.

Based in Chiapas, Mexico, Maya Vinic is composed of 656 farmer families who joined together after the 1997 Acteal massacre that took the lives of 45 of their community members. Inspired by the traditions of their ancestors, Maya Vinic operates with a respect for local language and culture, and a reverence for Mother Earth and traditional forms of self government. Farmers are based in the municipalities of Chenalhó, Pantelhó and Chalchihuitán.Cafe Campesino began sourcing coffee from Maya Vinic in 2002, when the cooperative exported its first container of coffee under fair-trade terms. We have always been inspired by the resilience, diligence and commitment to community Maya Vinic farmers have shown. In the past 17 years, we have seen the quality of Maya Vinic coffee excel, while cooperative leadership remained committed to getting more money back to farmer members. Maya Vinic now roasts and sells its coffee throughout Mexico, as well as from its own coffee shop in San Cristobal de las Casas.

Bold chocolate taste

First time I've purchased this coffee and I love it. As the label notes, this is a bold coffee with a pronounced chocolate aftertaste. Wouldn't necessarily be the one I reach for in a 2-3 cup morning blend, but really enjoy it as an after-dinner coffee. Dessert and coffee all in one glass! Paul B

New favorite morning cup

Fantastic coffee. Chiapas Maya Vinic has a great lingering chocolate flavor, but also a nice citrusy tang that I've come to love drinking black first thing in the morning. Kent Dagnall
