Our microlot comes from the Chiapas region which shares a border with Guatemala. Breathtaking volcanoes regulate the wind and moisture flows, while also offering nutritious soil. This coffee has flavours of wild berries, almonds and coconut milk. Complemented by a strong sweetness of molasses.
The Benefecio Comunitario Sibactel is located in the Tenejapa region. The Mayan inhabitants who live there belong to the Tseltal community which is extremely shy. Together with Jesús Salazar they put in place quality improvements: Selective picking of cherries. Training to fight coffee plant diseases and to improve agricultural practices.
We are happy to pay a high premium for high coffee quality that was produced. We believe that empowering our coffee growers for the value they have added is a way to fundamentally change the supply chain, and support a new coffee growing culture. Our particular microlot comes from a single producer, however, it is important to Jesús that this level of coffee quality would not have been possible without the team effort. So we named the coffee after the team: Sibactel.
