Costa Rica Perla Negra

  • $22.99

Owners Oscar and Francisca Chacon run what is considered to be one of the best micro mills in Costa Rica. Well known for its exceptional drying techniques for natural and honey-processed coffees, Las Lajas is constantly experimenting and developing new processing techniques to create the best possible coffees. After working with the Chacons for several years, we had the pleasure of visiting the mill during our 2018 trip to Costa Rica. Scroll down to learn more about the Perla Negra natural process. Very sweet with notes of ripe pineapple & strawberry, juicy watermelon, and pleasantly tart rhubarb.

Coffee Info

The Perla Negra natural process is defined by selective harvesting of only the ripest cherries. These cherries are washed and moved to patios for drying, and are moved intermittently throughout the morning, then capped and covered in the afternoon and evenings. Cherries dry for between 22 and 27 days.
