      About Costa Rica Montañas del Diamante

      Latest arrival end of March 2017. This coffee from Costa Rica comes from the Dota Valley located in Tarrazu and is grown at very high elevations between 1750 and 1850 meters above sea level. This particular lot is Red Catuai, (a hybrid of Caturra and Mundo Novo) grown in volcanic soil. Preparation is fully washed and patio dried.

      The Montanas del Diamante estate is owned by the Gutierrez family. Their mission is to produce excellent quality coffee while maintaining a friendly ecological, environmental, and social commitment to its producers. The farm owns and operates its own wetmill of the same name. Their facility is high tech yet energy efficient and environmentally forward. The facility prides itself on proper handling of products and conservation methods.

      This coffee is very dense and can withstand dark as well as light roasting. SHB designations in Costa Rica refer to coffee grown between 1200 and 1650 meters (about 3900 to 5400 feet) but this coffee is grown much higher, thus it is more concentrated. Use it as an single origin coffee or add it to a blend to provide acidity, balance and nuance.

      Cupping Characteristics: Very sweet and bright. Crisp, clean and transparent. Citrusy, orange and tangerine. A versatile coffee that can be light or dark roasted, used as a single origin or blend component. Very balanced.

      Roasting Notes: This is a durable, dense bean with a bright cup that can withstand darker roasting as well as being suited to light roasts. On a Behmor, try P1 or P2 to maximize heat intensity.
