Strawberry, rich and chocolatey
This coffee is produced by the Grupo Asociativo con Fines Ecologicos de El Macizo Colombiano or MACIZO. MACIZO is comprised of 50 small coffee growers who each have between 1 and 7 hectares of land. They have a cupping lab and pay their pickers additional wages to harvest only ripe cherries in order to produce a high quality coffee. As a result of their commitment to quality, they have been finalists in the Cup of Excellence contest several times. Only 20% of the coffee produced by MACIZO is used for the El Diamante coffee.
