Yachil – Mexico – Medium Roast


Yachil Xojobal Chu’lchan, which means “new light in the sky” in the Tzeltal language, was founded in 2001 with an initial 383 small-scale coffee farmer members from the Tzotzil and Tzeltal Mayan indigenous communities in the municipalities of Chilon, Pantelho and San Juan Cancuc.

A defining characteristic of Yachil membership is their progressive, political position of solidarity with the Zapatista movement, struggling for autonomy and respect for Indigenous rights. Striving to offer a consistently high-quality coffee, raised with care and respect for their natural resources, the coop offers their producer members regular educational and capacity-building activities focused on sustainable farming techniques and the importance of a strong social economy.

In the cup, Yachil has medium body, rounded out with nuttiness and mild acidity, balanced with sweet, deep flavors of caramel, dark chocolate and spices.
