Sourcing information: 

The mill, La Perla is located less than a minute walk from the storied Herbazu mill in Lourdes de Naranjo, Costa Rica. The new mill saw its first harvest this year using a multitude of farms from the region.

Diana and Carlos Barrantes decided to take their own capital and build their own mill close by to Carlos' brother's mill (Herbazu) when the potential of all of the nearby farms grew to near capacity for just one milling operation.

The Barrantes family have planted a number cultivars near their mill. This lot consists of Villa Sarchi, which is a variety that was first propagated very close to La Perla, making it an ideal place to grow.

This small lot of coffee is a great introduction to this brand new mill.
