El Salvador, the most densely populated country on the American mainland, has around 24,000 coffee producers on 16,000 Hectares of land. The coffee farms are located at an altitude between 800 and 1,500 meters above the sea level.
SHG - Strictly High Grown specifies that the coffee was grown at an altitude around 1,350 m. Coffee grown at a higher altitude and lower temperature produces a slower maturing fruit and a denser bean, which creates a more desirable speciality cup.
The Diamante beans are sourced primarily from the highlands in the Sierra Apaneca Ilamatepec region, including the volcanoes of Santa Ana, Izalco, Las Ninfas and Laguna Verde, and the mountains of El Aguila, Los Naranjos and Malacara.
Great flavour, not too strong and has good crema
The products were here before I expected them. Great coffee good choice of coffee.
My most favourite coffee ever - smooth and creamy - never bitter. It reminds me of the morning coffee I adored when I was in Austria. Totally fab. Thank you Redber for a marvellous service. Your descriptions are totally accurate and it's also good to try different beans from time to time as an extra.
We bought 10kg of green beans that was very poor quality and also 2kg of roasted beans to compare. The roast meant to be medium, according to you, but was light and undeveloped. Overall, very unhappy with this purchase. Disappointing, specially the roasted beans.
Wonderful as always. We love El Salvador Diamante. Look forward to the first cup every morning. Thank you so much, Redber, for your fabulous service - even in 'lockdown' totally reliable. Also recently when a pack got mangled in the post - you phoned us and resent another pack - first class service - you are brilliant!
