Behind the Beans
Temple of the Great Jaguar is named after Tikal temple in Guatemala.
Juan Hernandez Aguilar is a small indigenous Mayan producer who speaks Mam.
Cultivated in the Sierra de Los Cuchumatanes mountains of Huehuetenango, this micro-lot from Juan is located in a sector of Rio Ocho that he refers to as Q’Ail.
Juan is committed to organic farming practices, but does not have organic certification due to the significant financial investment required for certification.
Unique to their growing area, Juan de-pulps the coffee cherry in his parcels and then transports it to his home to complete the wet mill process. He then dries his coffee on black nylon and concrete patios in full sun.

What do I need to know about shipping chocolate?
Shipping chocolate is a delicate adventure - especially in summer.
Our chocolate is especially vulnerable to the effects of temperature fluctuation because we avoid the use of all stabilizers, preservatives, and fillers.
Our summer shipping protocol is currently in place:
- We only ship chocolate on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays. Orders placed between Thursday and Sunday will ship the following Monday.
- We occasionally make the tough call to postpone shipping on hot days. We will always update you accordingly.
- We recommend all chocolate orders are sent by USPS Priority Mail Express.
- We cannot offer refunds on chocolate shipped during the summer using USPS Ground or USPS Priority Shipping.
- While we can only offer refunds to customers who have selected USPS Priority Mail Express shipping for their chocolate, please contact us if you are unhappy in any way with your order and we’ll do what we can to make it right.
See our FAQ page for more details on chocolate and temperature!
I love light roasted coffees from Guatemala and this is a great example of how good they can be. Will definitely be coming back for another bag!
My favorite blend
This is the first coffee I tried in-store. I'm happy to be able to recreate the flavor in my own home. This coffee has become my go-to on any occasion and is best served black.
Fantastic light roast!
This is my favorite light roast. It's perfect in the morning, afternoon, or night. Highly recommend it!
One of my favorite places to go. The owner makes the most amazing coffee and chocolate! I highly recommend Maps to anyone who is a lover of coffee and/or chocolate.
Finally found coffee worth driving across town for!!!.....Quite possibly one of the best cold brews I've ever had..... Like ever
Great fresh roasted coffee and amazing hand-made chocolate! Going back for more. 😋
Expert coffee roasting with a personal touch. If you have not been there drop what you’re doing immediately and go get some of these delicious beans.
Absolutely amazing coffee and chocolate. I would highly recommend. We have friends come from Alabama and Nepal for the coffee.
Vince always has recently roasted coffee, and it DOES make a difference. AND he has the best-tasting DECAF anywhere, the last bag I had was better than most other whole bean coffees.
I’ve tried just about every coffee in KC, and Maps is the best.
Best coffee I've had in YEARS. Everyone was very nice and knowledgeable. The chocolate was also amazing. I know where I'll be buying my coffee from, from now on.
You’ll find the most welcoming environment and delicious tasting COFFEE & CHOCOLATE in the greater KC Area!
I live in Tennessee and whenever I travel to KC, I stop in and pick up a few bags, hang out and have a cup and do some emails. Get the “Milk” roast, it’s the best coffee I’ve ever had.
Such a great place! The owner is so friendly and full of so much knowledge, and his cold brew is the absolute best. His chocolate is delicious too, with unique flavors!
Been to most of the coffee shops/roasters in KC. This one is by far the best...Found my perfect coffee. Maps is my new spot.
