I thought this was going to be something about the Zapatistas when I read the title.

It's interesting that the word anarchy can be used both to describe a state of lawlessness and also a form of social living without hierachies. Of course in practise, hierachies tend to develop even when people are ideologically against them. Living in community is very difficult and anarchist communities don't always work, especially in the long term.

By the way, it's possible to buy Zapatista coffee... (this link is to an American site but there are quite a few sites from England selling it and probably elsewhere under the marque "Cafe Rebelde") https://schoolsforchiapas.org/store/coffee-corn-and-agricultural/zapatista-coffee/
