Our big, tasty Mexican beans come from the Mut Vitz ('Hill of Birds') Coffee Cooperative in the Northern Highlands of Chiapas. Like other indigenous peoples of Mexico, the Tzotzil farmers of Mut Vitz are under intense pressure from the government and the international corporate world to give up their identities and their lands. The pressures are as indirect as the international market price and the destruction of traditional landholding laws in Mexico, and as direct as armed incursions into the villages and the theft of their coffee harvest by paramilitaries.
'Que? Usted solo ofrece cafÃƒÂ© instantaneo aqui?' - What? You only serve instant coffee here?
'Tu eres un gran baillena' - You are a big whale (I thought I said 'great dancer')
