Introducing Las Perlitas (Huila, Colombia)

 

Read Las Perlitas Story

This small lot blend was introduced to us by our importer friends, Coffee Quest U.S. (Formerly known as TUSA Specialty Coffee). Throughout the harvest, it's quite common that small-holders produce lots that aren't large enough to be exported on their own. However, the quality is often just as good (or better) than samples received from larger lots. As such, we decided to buy all coffees, regardless of size and create a blend based on cup score and profile. The result is Las Perlitas: a celebrated coffee of various small lots from producers around the Huila region, whose farms range in elevation from 1,600 to 1,900 m.a.s.l. and grow Caturra, Caturra Mejorado, Castillo, Colombia and Pink Bourbon.
