Fruit compote of strawberry, pineapple, cherry and grapefruit with zinfandel acidity and formidable body encompassing a broad ranging sense of balance. A Huehuetenango powerhouse filled with fruit tones and great structure.
El Diamante is produced by Patricia Perez Diaz and her mother on their family farm in Agua Dulce, Hueheutenango. This is our second year offering her beautiful coffee. This particular processing lot represents her second full pick of the harvest and it comes from the highest elevations on the farm.
This coffee explores dynamic aromatic territory. Prickly aromas of strawberry and pineapple with all sorts of peaky zing. And the flavors deliver in powerful fashion much like winey bourbon cultivar from Kenya. The prowess of Paty Perez’s terroir and processing both show their muster here in this year’s El Diamante.
After repose, El Diamante is sealed in Grain-Pro barrier packaging and then sent on its way to our Roastery where we preserve the green coffee under hermetic seal until it is roasted as part of our Barrington Green Seal Program©.
Try Diamante Villatoro and Diamante Perez side by side as our Double Diamonds Tasting Pair. They are complimentary and when tasted side by side with the Diamante Perez accentuating power and the Diamante Villatoro accentuating delicacy.
