In Mayan culture, the Tz’ikin is a nahual (spirit animal) and the keeper of Mayan lands. Inspired by the protective nahual, they contribute a portion of profits from every bag sold. This premium goes to support "Coffee Kinder", a 35-day school program that enables kids ages 3 to 12 to continue learning while their parents are working as day labourers in harvest season activities
Previously sold as Mam, the quality of Tz’ikin remains the same, with the added benefit of supporting sustainable coffee production. The name change also recognizes the challenges that come with coffee farming in a changing climate.
