Perla Negra started as a result of many cupping sessions to determine the perfect balance between the sweetness of chocolate, panela and yellow fruit acidity found in this full bodied coffee.
La Perla Negra coffee, or "The Black Pearl" is produced in the mountains of Chiquimula and Zacapa. 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 Basílica of Esqui pulas. For this reason, this coffee is named Perla Negra.

Good service. Prompt delivery. Delicious coffee.
Guatemala isn’t a bad roast, but is pretty light and modest in flavor. I was looking for something with more definition and depth.
