Deep in Agua Dulce on the western frontier of Huehuetenango, hours from the city, Patricia Perez lovingly and deftly cares for her coffee plants from blossom through harvest. Paty has been producing her own coffee at Finca El Diamante for just over thirteen years now. Having come from a family with over eighty years cultivating coffee, she mines generations of wisdom in her processes. It's no wonder that El Diamante lots are exemplary each year for their distinctive tropical fruits, sweetness and clarity, from the main Diamante lot to her Maragogype.
Their values are to produce the best coffee that they possibly can with what they have and also to be a strong part of the local community. She values sensible buyers; meaning someone who listens and understands that there is a lot more to coffee than meets the eye and will care about the people and the community as well as the quality of the coffee year after year.
