This very special small co-op is comprised of families from highland communities in the municipalities of Chenalhó, Pantelhó, and Chalchihuitán. They have been producing coffee since the early 1900’s. Almost a century later they organized the Coop with the goal of becoming part of a more equitable market. In 2001, Conscious imported their first fair trade, organic harvest into the US.
I have been a subscriber since their launch, having been introduced to Better Grounds at a coffee festival. I have enjoyed every monthly selection so far! Their service is a great choice for anyone who, like me, wants easier access great quality coffee and anyone who might feel overwhelmed trying to look into the sourcing bonafides of different brands. I appreciate that they do this work for their clients, and also support different roasters who are doing good work.
