A unique coffee blend of various small lots from producers throughout Huila, Colombia.

Throughout the harvest, it's quite common that small-holders in Colombia 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 buy all coffees, regardless of size and create a larger, export-size lot based on cup score and profile. The result is Las Perlitas Huila; a celebrated coffee of various small lots from producers in Huila, whose farms range in elevation from 1,600 to 2,000 m.a.s.l. and grow Caturra and Pink Bourbon. In this iteration, the small lots are made up of producers in the following municipalities: Pitalito, Santa Maria, San Agustin, and Algeciras. However, this lot also has one small special twist in that we also included a very high scoring lot of Geisha, from Samaniego, Nariño. The Geisha lots we have received from Nariño are some of the best Geishas we have tasted in Colombia and this particular lot was no exception!
