About El Diamante Espresso

Our Head of coffee

Will says:

The dark chocolate flavour of this coffee opens up with the very first sip. There’s also a very mild and smooth acidity, like the kind you get from a ripe apple, which strikes a lovely balance to that richness. It all wraps up with a mouthfeel that’s round and creamy, and leads perfectly into the long cocoa aftertaste.

About the farmer

Jesus Antonio Apache began his career in coffee by rolling up his sleeves and helping his father on the farm from the age of 12. From there he moved on to pick coffee for other farms in the area. His years of experience taught him the importance of coffee quality, an attitude he carries with him.

About the farm

Today, his farm sets the example for speciality coffee production in the region and, with a little help from the Federacion Nacional de Cafeteros, he’s been able to improve his cultivation techniques in order to keep on improving the quality of his coffee.

He also has a strong reputation as a fair and reliable employer in the region. For Jesus, it is very important that his workers are treated equally and that they understand the care required when it comes to achieving excellent quality.

A quick Q&A with the farmer, Jesus Antonio Apache:

How has working with Pact affected your family?

"Pact’s been buying our coffee for four years - the extra money we earn from selling coffee has paid for us to put our daughter through college and to make house renovations. Will’s ongoing support helps us to produce better coffee each year."

What does being a coffee farmer mean to you?

“It’s more than just growing coffee. It’s about taking care and preserving all resources, from labour force and environment to the culture of the area.”
