Why should you drink it?
More than any other coffee we've carried, this one is a "crowd pleaser" ... if it were a karaoke song, it'd be Neil Diamond's "Sweet Caroline." It's both familiar and perfect!
Also, Sicobi has a unique cup profile. While the cooperative's coffees are 100% washed process, they profile similar to a natural coffee. This is due in part to the natural conditions of the area, particularly the very dry landscape which creates a unique micro-climate. Sicobi’s growers ferment their coffee in wood tanks, which also helps give the coffee the profile of a natural.
Sicobi was founded in 2010 by a non-governmental organization called GAIA (Grupo Autónomo para la Investigación Ambiental), a group of biologists that have worked in Oaxaca for 25 years. As a result, the group has a strong focus on preserving the stunning natural environment in Sierra Sur, Oaxaca, where the cooperative is located.
