Mark Adams and Miriam Adams-Moldanado Escobar founded the innovative Cafe Justo with a mission to provide coffee farmers in Chiapas an avenue to sell their products for a more just return. Cafe Justo assures farmers a better rate of return and this helps stabilize their families and helps them avoid the migrant life. The Cafe is also a safe place — free of drugs and alcohol. And it provides jobs and training for those who otherwise can’t find work. The coffee is shade-grown, 100% organic coffee. All revenues go to the grower’s cooperative in Chiapas and the communities involved in the roasting and shipping of coffee. Coffee growers receive a fair price for their coffee and medical and retirement benefits. Purchases help support spin-off jobs and economic development south of the border as this enterprise continues to grow. In short, it is all good!
