Caramelised nectarines, citrus acidity, medium body, medium roast
Fernando Díaz inherited La Idolia four years ago when his father Roberto Díaz died suddenly. Roberto was an experienced and established coffee farmer with over thirty years in the industry. He was passionate about coffee, increasing quality in every area of farming and processing, with all four of his farms doing well in the Guatemalan Cup of Excellence competition. With the help of Roberto’s notebooks (he was a prolific notetaker) Fernando has stepped into his father’s shoes, persevered through an intense learning curve, and is now making his own mark on the farms and in the industry. La Idolia, one of the four family farms, is located between Tecuamburro and Pacaya volcanoes in the department of Santa Rosa. Pacaya is an active volcano, producing ash rain periodically, which poses its own unique problems for the farms in the area. This is the first year we have bought coffee from La Idolia which was introduced to us by Eduardo Ambrocio at Prisma Coffee - we are excited by its stone-fruit and citrus clarity.
