Handpicked by farmers and harvested for field-to-cup perfection, these coffees come from the world’s preferred farms and fields for a story that strongly appeals to today’s coffee aficionados.

Gustavo is a true personification of Red Diamond’s commitment to those who value the earth and all that it produces. He and his family are stewards of the land, nurturing and growing their impeccable coffee crop amid this ideal high-elevation ecosystem – working alongside esteemed locals who are committed to the same level of perfection that makes Gustavo one of Red Diamond’s most valued coffee providers.

Unlike other Kuda Mas, our Lintong-mark Kuda Mas is grown in the more preferred regions of 5,000-foot elevations or higher.

Together, farmers and fieldworkers perfectly craft a coffee that is triple-handpicked, sundried, then bagged and shipped from their home to our home to yours.

PUTTING COFFEE WORKERS FIRST: RED DIAMOND IS A PROUD SPONSOR OF SOCIAL GOOD
In keeping with Red Diamond’s commitment to the world’s coffee communities, we proudly invest in organizations which we believe will improve the economic, social and environmental outlook of the future. We are thrilled to be an ongoing sponsor of Grounds for Health.
Women are responsible for up to 70% of the labor involved in growing, harvesting, processing and exporting coffee. The health and wellbeing of these women are vital to the success of their families and communities. Grounds for Health focuses on providing critical cervical cancer prevention services in coffee origin countries. For women in these countries, cervical cancer has a higher mortality rate than any other cancer, and yet this disease is easily detectable and when caught early, highly treatable. With over 90,000 women screened and over 6,700 women treated, GFH is on their way to their vision of “A world in which all women are protected from the threat of cervical cancer by timely and high-quality prevention services.” Red Diamond salutes Grounds For Health for their commitment and we are proud to continue our sponsorship of their effort.
