Many manufacturers discuss food safety, quality assurance and traceability. At Mayorga, we have focused on these very important aspects since the founding of our company. To continuously improve the quality of our product, we were one of the first coffee roasting companies to be certified under BRC food safety guidelines, recognized by the Global Food Safety Initiative.

Since the moment we roasted our first batches of specialty coffee in 1997, we’ve focused on creating a balance of craft roasting with quality assurance and scalability. We roast on the highest grade Probat, San Franciscan, and Diedrich roasters, which are considered the best in the industry. Our roasting equipment goes through extensive after-market customization to manualize processes, improve controls, and create better heat retention. These manualized machines are supervised and managed by our Roastmaster, Alfredo, who has been roasting with us since 2000.
Every batch of coffee that we roast is traceable back to the farm where it was grown and every step of our processes is managed with care for quality, consistency, and food safety. Coffee goes directly from our roasting system through a de-stoner and magnet system and is immediately packaged in foil bags with one-way degassing valves. We do not maintain roasted coffee inventory and only roast to order.
