In Mayan culture, the Tz’ikin is a nahual (spirit animal) and the keeper of Mayan lands. Inspired by the nahual, we contribute a portion of our profits from every bag sold. This premium goes to support agronomy outreach. Agronomy projects will help coffee producers adapt to a changing climate. Through agronomy outreach, our Tz’ikin blend helps protect the earth by promoting sustainable coffee production. This project is developed and implemented with a local foundation.
Today, about 75% of Huehuetenango’s population are indigenous Maya. Tz’ikin is sourced from smallholders in a micro-region around La Libertad, Cuchamantes mountain range and San Pedro Necta municipalities in the Huehuetenango region.
