The Sicobi Group
We’ve been developing a relationship with the Sicobi group for six years now, and continue to be impressed with the consistent quality of the coffee they’re exporting. Founded ten years ago by the non-governmental organization GAIA, as part of its efforts to support and encourage biodiversity, Sicobi now manages 1,500 hectares of coffee plantations that belong to 500 growers in their region of Oaxaca. They select only a small percentage of the available coffee, in order to focus their efforts on developing quality and differentiating markets.
The coffees processed through Sicobi don’t fit the standard Mexican cup profile you may be familiar with. Some of them almost have the fruity character of a natural, despite being fully washed; that happens because of the natural conditions of the region, particularly the very dry landscape that creates a unique micro-climate. This year’s lot is another strong one, boasting a pleasant citrus acidity and a malty, sweet character.
To provide you with the freshest product, all coffee is sold as Whole Bean. If you would like your coffee ground please let us know in your order notes.
