This coffee is sourced from El Diamante, a small family-owned farm located in the remote region of Huehuetenango. Following the passing of her father 14 years ago, Patricia Perez took over the family farm, becoming the first woman to own a farm in her village. Patricia skillfully and lovingly cares for her coffee plants from blossom to harvest. She lives with her mother Auri and her 7 year old daughter Iza in their simple, but charming house overlooking the drying patios. Today, she grows Bourbon, Caturra, Maragogype and Geisha in the shade of several fruit trees: lemon, orange, banana and apricot trees.
