About The Coffee

 

La Perla Negra, or “The Black Pearl” is a blend of caturra and catuai varietals produced by 7 small holders in the mountains of Chiquimula and Zacapa. The department of Chiquimula is coloquially known as La Perla de Oriente due to its beautiful landscapes and architecture as well as the beauty of the people who live there. Chiquimula is known for being the cradle of art and artists as many of Guatemala’s best poets, writers, singers, musicians come from there. Esquipulas is a municipality located inside this department and is known for its Black Christ, a wooden image of Christ now housed in the Cathedral Basilica of Esquipulas. For this reason, this coffee is named Perla Negra.

The coffee cherries are dried on raised and covered beds and processed at the individual farms before being quality assessed and blended for export.
