Peru El Diamante
The latest Single Origin hitting SO espresso is the Peru El Diamante. With a soft and juicy acidity reminiscent of fresh pears and peach-like sweetness, it’s a delicious way to start your day! At SO espresso we strive to build strong and sustainable relationships with our producers. Peru El Diamante is produced by the Aromas del Valle, an innovative co-op located in Peru. The mission at the Co-Op is to create greater opportunities for producers and produce the highest quality coffee in the region.
The producers handpick the best coffee cherries to undergo a lengthy fermentation of 18 hours. During this process any cherries with a lower density will be removed to ensure only the highest quality cherry is sun-dried. The sun-drying of the cherries is very strict as well, with the cherries placed on raised beds for around 18 days to reach a moisture level of 12%.
