MIAMI — Mayorga Organics announced plans for a new, 33,000-square-foot coffee facility in Miami. The new plant will distribute coffee, chia and other organic products across the East coast in conjunction with the company’s Rockville, M.D., factory. 

Since its inception in 1996, Mayorga Organics has supported small coffee farmers in Nicaragua. Over the years it has evolved to work with small farmers throughout Latin America and launched a crop diversification program that has grown to more than 4 million lbs of organic chia each year.

“We exist to create market opportunities for our farmers,” said 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.”

The larger facility will allow the company to expand into sustainably sourced cacao and other diversified products, he added.

In addition to a manufacturing facility, Mayorga’s new coffee factory will feature a coffee bar and 4,000-square-foot showroom for tasting, tours, events and classes.

Clair Butman, brand manager at Mayorga, said educating consumers about the Latin American agricultural industry is an important part of Mayorga’s commitment to ending poverty in the region.

Mayorga Organics is an independently owned and operated company that is best known for its Café Cubano organic coffee. It also manufactures under private label agreements for local as well as national clients.
