we import coffee, sell bulk green coffee, plus roast, design and sell single origin and coffee blends.
Koben Yah is the Mayan word for chef.
We chose that name for our company because we craft each flawless cup of our coffee the same way a chef approaches a perfect plate of food. We search for the optimum raw ingredients, pay attention to how the ingredients are grown, accept only the finest of the crop, and treat it with loving care that coaxes its very best flavor.
Treat people well. Buy only the best. Respect the beans.
Our philosophy is simple: We work directly with small-batch coffee growers from around the world, buy only the highest grade high-altitude coffees, and pay these families of growers a price that ensures they can continue to enrich their lives through their work. Over nearly 20 years of embracing this philosophy, we have built friendships, homes and college educations for our families of growers. And we have forged a reputation among top chefs for our exclusively designed roasts and unique blends.

All of our imports are high-altitude coffees grown 1600-2100 meters above sea level. The cooler temperatures and lower humidity of this setting ensures healthier beans and fewer insect or fungus defects. We only import Arabica beans of Bourbon and Caturra cultivar varieties.
