More about the coffee, producer & region.
The main varieties grown in the medium altitudes is catuai and castillo, and at higher altitudes it is all bourbon, caturra and typica. El Diamante is one of the few areas in Jaen to have protected forests, which are home to a variety of flora and fauna native to the region. Not only that, there are also many water sources that supply much of the water to the city. This thriving natural environment creates a beautiful setting to grow coffee, but also contributes to the richness and stability of the soils in the area. The cup profile of the coffees in this area is very distinct, with a heavily fruited cup and a pronounced acidity.
About the Region
El Diamante is one of the closest coffee producing areas to the city of Jaen and therefore has a huge cooperative presence, at least in the lower elevations.
About the Process
This coffee is a mix of caturra and catuai varieties, which were picked, washed and floated before being macerated in the cherry for 16 hours. After the maceration period the cherries were pulped and fermented in sealed grain-pro bags for 2 days under shade. The coffee was then dried under shade for 15 days.
