Blind Assessment: Sweetly pungent, very deep, quietly complex. Sweet dark chocolate, clove, prune, hints of grapefruit and musky night flowers in aroma and cup. Soft but vibrant acidity; plush mouthfeel. Chocolate in particular carries into a very long, resonant finish.

Notes: El Diamante is produced by Patricia Perez Diaz and her mother on their family farm. Barrington Coffee is an artisan roaster dedicated to elite coffees, fresh delivery and roasting that foregrounds the coffee and not the roast. Visit or call 800-528-0998 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: Those who enjoy resonant depth and spicy, musky chocolate.
