Mayita Mendez, Irving Farm Coffee Roasters

Mayita is the Manager of Strategic Partnerships at Irving Farm Coffee Roasters in New York City. Mayita was born in San Salvador, El Salvador and moved to New York City when she was 5 years old. As a 5th generation coffee producer, she had the privilege of visiting her family's farms on every trip back to the homeland. It wasn't until after a career as a photojournalist and healer, that she came back to coffee. As a barista, then wholesale representative, she learned all she could to share with the family farms in El Salvador. In her current position at Irving Farm she has the opportunity to learn from the producing partners and share their stories with our team and customers. Coffee is truly about connection!
