The Finca El Diamante story:
Humberto Pecupaque and his wife Alba Zuleta are the proprietors of Finca El Diamante in Gaitania, Tolima, Colombia. Humberto, understanding the risk implied in alternative coffee growing techniques and the potential reward they can provide, has elected to invest heavily and take great risks with the goal of improving producer income in their cooperative.
This is a beautiful coffee that showcases the special microlots coming out of farms in Colombia. The Pink Bourbon is an unusual varietal and combined with special farming techniques Humberto and Alba have produced a very special coffee. Balanced, sweet, complex and very clean with wonderful fruits flavours.
Roast Level: light
We roast the Diamante to a lightly roasted profile that really brings out its sweet floral complexity. It makes a stunning pour over filter coffee and ideally should be drunk black. For espresso drinkers, it is only suitable for brewing on professional equipment.
