Description: The Union of Ejidos and Communities San Fernando, who produce Sibactel, was constituted on 26 July 2012, with the aim of seeking the association of small coffee producers, who together would seek marketing channels for their product avoiding middlemen.

In the beginning, they produced conventional (non-organic) coffee. But as the organization matured, they began to consider which would be the most appropriate mechanisms to satisfy the organization's primary objectives, which were, in addition to the commercialization of coffee, to improve the social and economic conditions of the producers' environment, to care for and promote respect for the environment and to conserve renewable and non-renewable natural resources. In this sense, the organization began a process of transition from traditional to organic crops.

Today, the Union of Ejidos and Communities San Fernando is one of the most consolidated social enterprises in Chiapas, bringing together more than 1,300 families of small coffee producers who own an average of 2 hectares of coffee each, located throughout Chiapas.

Sibactel arrived with tasting notes of Graham Cracker, Vanilla, Milk Chocolate, and a hint of Peach.

Excellent Quality

Roasted to full city. Worked well in espresso, but really enjoyed the drip coffee and agreed it reminded me of a Costa Rican.

Clean and a bit delicate, but with a twist

Summary: This Mexican is much better than many I’ve tried over the years, a sign that their coffee industry is responding to demand for higher-quality coffee. If I hadn’t known its origin, I would have guessed it was a Costa Rica. Details: Prep was careful with few defects. Roasted evenly to City++ level. I let it rest 3 days, then cupped. It was a bit delicate, but clean and sweet, like you expect from a good CR. Aroma was slight, but brewed brought forth Vanilla, graham cracker and floral notes with a peach skin acidity note on the finish which I found a little incongruous with the rest of the profile. Next time I plan to roast all the way to FC and see if that pesky twist on the finish goes away. Overall, I like it blended with other Centrals with a little more kick.

farm to cup

We get our beans from the farms and roast coffee daily. We truly are farm to cup.
