Spice blends that give back...

JMT is so very proud to partner with Heifer International as they work to help Cardamom farmers in Guatemala brave destructive pests, deadly snakes and predatory markets to grow and sell one of the world’s most expensive spices - cardamom. 

We hope you'll take a moment to consider the plight of the Mayan farmers by reading this informative article from the World Ark magazine and join us as we strive to make a difference.

We have just released three new spice blends and one of them, Gaucho Espresso, uses cardamom grown by farmers participating in the Cardamom project and sold directly to our company, bypassing the "coyotes," netting the farmers a better price!

Thank you for supporting our efforts and those of Heifer International...
