Our Story

Passion

Ruta Maya Coffee has been family owned and operated since 1990. For over two decades, we've worked in partnership with cooperatives of Mayan farmers to import 100% organic, shade-grown Arabica coffee beans from the highlands of Chiapas, Mexico -- the land of the ancient and modern Maya. These beans have exceptional richness that combine ancient growing techniques with gentle roasting to extract the ultimate in coffee depth and flavor. Hand-harvested green coffee beans are imported to Austin, TX, where they are custom roasted to exacting standards and packed fresh daily. 

Meets Purpose

Our line of products embodies Latin American cultures working together with Texans to foster universal messages of respect and friendship through economic cooperation. “Opportunidades para las Americas," or Opportunities for the Americas, is the guiding principle that has led Ruta Maya Coffee from vision to reality and everywhere in between.

Meets Generational Bonds

We place high priority on growing beans among, and in rotation with other food crops, enabling farmers to sustain and replenish their lands for future generations while helping to promote conservation of natural resources. By working directly with family-owned coffee cooperatives, as opposed to third-party traders, we’re able to help support indigenous farmers in becoming a viable economic force within their communities.
