USA – American specialty organic coffee producer, Mayorga Organics, has opened a 43,000 square foot state-of-the-art organic specialty coffee facility in Miami, Florida.
Mayorga said that the location will operate in conjunction to the company’s other facility in Rockville, Maryland to continue to meet national demand for the its brand of products.
The new facility further cements the company’s interests in the coffee business. Mayorga Organics was founded by Martin Mayorga and has been in the coffee business for more tan two decades.
Since its inception in 1996 to support small coffee farmers in Nicaragua, Mayorga has also evolved to work exclusively with small organic farmers throughout Latin America and has launched a crop diversification program to give farmers food stability.
“We exist to create market opportunities for our farmers,” states Martin Mayorga, Founder and President of Mayorga Organics.
“The Miami market is ideal for us to bring our message of sustainability, high quality, and to be unapologetically and proudly Latino.
“This larger facility will allow us to evolve into other diversified products such as cacao, quinoa, and chia while proudly representing the Latino community through high quality products that are truly sustainable,” he adds.
Capabilities at Mayorga’s Miami facility will include whole bean packaging, ground brick packs, a dedicated area to industrial cold-brewing and canning, as well as packaging grains and beans from the company’s producer partners.
The facility is located at 8080 NW 58th in Miami and happens to be the facility where Café Bustelo was roasted and packaged before Smuckers purchased the brand and shuttered Miami roasting operations.
While Mayorga’s plans for tours are on hold indefinitely, the company said that it is re-developing its website and social media strategy to showcase everything from the farming process all the way to preparing a cup at home.
“Education and speaking openly about the realities of the agricultural industry in Latin America are hallmarks of the Mayorga philosophy,” states Clari Butman, Mayorga’s Brand Manager.
“We’re excited bring a brand into the Miami market that the local community can feel proud of as we continue to grow in the national Hispanic market, offering our people the quality, transparency, and authenticity we deserve as consumers,” she continues.
