I founded Mayorga Organics over 20 years ago with the mindset of trying to fix an antiquated and inequitable coffee supply chain to better-serve consumers and small farmers. Mayorga Organics is now highly recognized and respected and we do significant business with massive retailers, grocery stores, and local mom and pops.

This podcast is my venue to share what I've learned along the way as a business leader, father, and Latino immigrant trying to bring dignity, equality, and respect into the agriculture supply chain.

    27. A Conversation with Bartholomew Jones from Cxffeeblack

    27. A Conversation with Bartholomew Jones from Cxffeeblack

    Given the current (and very necessary) dialogue that we're having in the US, we decided to post this podcast a few days in advance.   

    We had a very open conversation with Bartholomew Jones from Cxffeeblack about his experience and point of view as a black man working in the coffee industry.   He comes from an arts and music background with a focus on education and community building.  His approach to coffee is "people first", which is something I really appreciate.  Check him out Instagram at @Cxffeeblack

    I hope you enjoy the conversation and I welcome any feedback to Martin@MayorgaOrganics.com.
