Grupo Terruño Nayarita (GTNAY) is an enterprise that delivers consistently high-quality, socially and environmentally responsible, internet traceable coffee from Mexico.

GTNAY stockholders are independent democratic coffee producing societies scattered throughout the state of Nayarit. These societies range in size from 15 to a hundred producers. And while each society develops its own infrastructure and elects its own leaders, they are equal participants in the GTNAY structure, agreeing to not compete with each other and to implement proven best practices.

A unique stockholder of the GTNAY organization is Cafés Sustentables de Mexico (CAFESUMEX, www.cafesumex.com). CAFESUMEX is the quality assurance member, assisting with dry mill, logistic, and export services.

CAFESUMEX was founded by James Kosalos in Tepic, Nayarit in 2003. CAFESUMEX employees help their fellow GTNAY member producers acquire and accumulate the background and quality assurance data needed to obtain certifications, promote sales, and directly export their coffee. CAFESUMEX is also the co-inventor and manufacturer of the FincaLab Quality Management System along with its fully equipped professional portable Coffee Evaluation Laboratory. CAFESUMEX uses the FincaLab system to evaluate coffee lots, dispense immediate quality feedback to farmers, design blends to meet export contracts, and print bag labels with barcodes and serial numbers that provide full internet traceability for the coffee.
