coffee details

Francisca and Oscar Chacon have long been leading the way in processing techniques that bring about sweet, fruit- forward cups of coffee. The coffee cherries are grown on multiple, unique farms in and around Sabanilla de Alajuela in Costa Rica’s Central Valley, and centrally processed at their Las Lajas Micro-Mill facility.

Their Perla Negra natural using sugar rich Catuai and Caturra arabica cherries sees the coffee dried directly in the sun for 10 days, with regular rotation to ensure even drying, and then transferring to bags for 2-3 days. The cherries finish drying on raised beds, delivering a very sweet, fruity, but clean cup with juicy acidity.
