The Producers' Union Maya Vinic is composed of about 500 coffee farming families located in highland communities in the municipalities of Chenalhó, Pantelhó and Chalchihuitán, in Chiapas, Mexico. Guided by a reverence for Mother Earth, the collective operates with a deep respect for local culture and language, and traditional forms of self governance. 

In the aftermath of the Acteal Massacre in 1997,the founding members of "Las Abejas," a network of Liberation Theology Catechists, envisioned the cooperative, Maya Vinic, as a foundation for a new life after great losses caused by political strife. The founders spent the next 3 years organizing, training, reclaiming land, and communicating, both locally and externally, to build a better alternative to the life they had come from. With a mind towards care and respect for their natural resources, sustainability, and the continued education of it's production partners, the collective strives to produce consistent, high-quality coffee, while building a strong social economy that improves the lives of it's farmers.


Depending on origin, growing region, and style of preparation, every coffee carries a unique set of physical and flavor characteristics, affected by such factors as longitude and latitude, amount of sun, shade, rainfall, cloud cover, soil content, nitrogen and minerals, and other factors.

As roasters, our job is to recognize and identify for our guests those special flavor characteristics that define a particular coffee, and determine the roasting methodology that will enhance these very special flavors.

Coffee Exchange offers 5 distinct roasts.  Each coffee is available in the roast(s) that suits its finest characteristics.

American Roast: Light brown in color with a dry surface, this roast is characterized by a light body and a bright, piquant flavor.

Full City Roast: A little darker, this roast creates a rich, sweet, full-bodied and complex cup. 

Vienna Roast:  Even darker, this roast brings the ambrosial coffee oils to the surface of the bean and brews a savory, pleasantly bittersweet cup.

French Roast: This roast results in a dark, oily bean with a bold flavor and a heady aroma. 

Espresso Roast: As dark as possible in pursuit of a densely flavored cup.
