The area of Chiquimula is known locally as La Perla de Oriente due to its beautiful landscapes, architecture, and people. Many of Guatemala's best poets, writers, singers, and musicians are local to Chiquimula. Esquipulas, located inside the department of Chiquimula is famous for its Black Christ, a wooden image of Christ housed in the Cathedral Basilica of Esquipulas. Blending these names together, the coffee is called La Perla Negra, or "The Black Pearl."
