US-based organic coffee maker Mayorga Organics is set to open a new coffee plant in Miami, Florida.

Working alongside the company’s Rockville facility in Maryland, the new 33,000ft² facility will provide distribution of fresh coffee, chia and other organic products across the East Coast.

Mayorga Organics founder and president Martin Mayorga said: “My family called Miami home after we bounced around Latin America having escaped the Nicaraguan revolution. In Nicaragua and Miami, the influence of the Cuban exiles became ingrained in my DNA.

“We exist to create market opportunities for our farmers. 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 sustainably sourced cacao and other diversified products.”

The new facility will offer a full view of the manufacturing facility and will feature a coffee bar and retail showroom.

The 4,000ft² retail area includes space for tastings, tours, events and classes.

Mayorga Organics brand manager Clari Butman said: “Education and speaking openly about the realities of the agricultural industry in Latin America are hallmarks of the Mayorga philosophy.

“With the purpose to eliminate systemic poverty in Latin America, it’s important that we educate our consumers on the real issues, empowering them to be part of the solution by consuming our healthy, high-quality products.”
