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.

Amazing taste

Love grinding this to use in my french press. It’s so smooth and everything I want out of my morning coffee :) Rachel

The Coffee of Everyday Luxury

Whether you're going to work on a Monday or hanging around the house on a Saturday, this dark and delicious coffee makes any morning better. The first sip will awaken you with a bright pop of lemony acidity, followed by dry and chocolaty earth tones that smooth and sweeten each subsequent sip . Its subtle aroma and medium body makes it a great everyday coffee. Perhaps the best feature of this coffee is that it manages to be both luxurious and down to earth. As we speak, I'm steaming a second pot of water and grinding another hopper of beans for the french press. Highly recommended. Ellis

Mexico Chiapas Full City Roast

We have been buying coffee from Maya Vinic for over 14 years now. I can't find another brand that compares to its flavor. Usually we do either a slow drip or coffee press. We also are proud to support Fair Trade. In 2005 we were lucky enough to visit some fair trade plantations in Chiapas and saw first hand the impact it has on the community. Thank you!!! TR
