Elvis Reinerio Tineo Rafael is a third-generation coffee producer who owns land in the El Diamante area of Jaen district in Northern Peru. El Diamante is a coffee producing area closest to the city of Jaen, main city in the Cajamarca coffee region. Elvis and his family own around 12 hectares of land between themselves. Elvis himself owns and managed 3 hectares of land which sits between 1700 to 1900 masl and is planted with Bourbon, Caturra and Catuai. His parents also grow coffee on the land adjacent to Elvis' and the whole family work the land together, coordinating their picking, processing and drying and sharing their facilities.
This lot has been selectively hand picked and macerated in the cherry for 48 hours before being pulped and dried on raised beds in the shade for around 15 days. The result is a very sweet and juicy coffee reminding us of yellow mirabelle plums and cantaloupe melon rounded off with golden syrupy sweetness.
