Las Perlitas, “The Little Pearls” of Colombia

Farmers & Beans’ Stories

Las Perlitas represents various small lots from farms across all of our main regions: Huila, Antioquia and Nariño. These farms typically range in elevation from 1,600 to 2.100 m.a.s.l. in which the focus is growing quality varieties. Behind the coffee contributing to the Las Perlitas lot, are small farmers committed to producing high quality coffee through experimentation and constant improvement.

Las Perlitas Huila usually include Caturra and sometimes Geisha, but with the amount of Pink Bourbon being planted in Huila these days, was created a 100% Pink Bourbon Las Perlitas, as a special distinct lot. The selection procedure is very strict, where used the same standard with each micro-lot or constructed lot. Every small lot is individually cupped various times before being included within the main lot. In addition to cup quality, each coffee must meet strict physical requirements, based on the guidelines for moisture content and water activity.

Among all the coffees of this harvest, Las Perlitas represents some of the very best of the season. To create a lot like this selected small micro lots that represent not more than 10% of the total, which were mixed to create larger Las Perlitas lots.
