Ek-Balam - Ek-Balam Productores del Jaguar S.C. DE R. L. de C.V. (Ek-Balam) was formed in 2019 with 399 members. The vast majority of producers have indigenous roots and continue to speak a native language. Nearly one third of these growers are women who depend on income from coffee to support their families. They cultivate coffee on farms that average just a few acres in size, small enough for each producer to process their own coffee with their own micro-mill. Ek-Balam provides crucial support to small producers. In particular, the association has helped producers gain access to credit and certifications. Investments for basic infrastructure needs, like road improvements, establishing local warehouses, and operating a dry-mill facility are all coordinated through Ek-Balam, which ensures traceability and quality control throughout the post-harvest process. Their collective efforts have established higher prices and more producer income to support best agricultural practices and improve livelihoods.

Great smell & taste every morning

It does not matter if it’s cold, dark, raining or snowing outside when I get up in the early morning because I know that within a couple of minutes I’ll hear the grinder doing it’s magic followed by the smell of ground french roast beans soon to be followed by the wonderful taste of a hot cup of Cafe Altura French Roast coffee. This is the way I start everyday, and if I’m traveling and don’t have access to this treat, I’m off center and not functioning right. If I lost access to these beans, I’d be forced into french roast detox. I have no idea how long it would require to recover.

Consistent Quality and Flavor

I drink coffee all day, every day, and have done so for forty plus years. I have been a Cafe Altura Organic French Roast customer for well over ten years. For my taste I've found nothing else that matches it.

Love your coffee, wish your packaging wasn’t plastic

Given your concern for the farmers who grow your coffee and for the earth that produces it, I wish your packaging didn’t include plastic that will never decompose. Recyclable and recycling plastic isn’t a good excuse since we don’t actually recycle most of the plastic we produce. It’s better to not produce it at all (and leave the petroleum in the ground). I think your smaller quantities come in cans. I wish your larger ones did too. Thanks! (I make my own blend, by mixing your House Blend with your French Roast.)

BEST FRENCH ROAST

We prefer a richly flavored dark roast, and the Cafe Altura French Roast is the best. Over the past 15 years it’s been our house coffee and we even take it with us when we travel.
