A note from our coffee source:

"In Spanish, Las Perlitas means “Little Pearls” and 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 Pink Bourbon. In most versions, there is usually a mix of varieties, which include Caturra and sometimes Geisha, but with the amount of Pink Bourbon being planted in Huila these days, we created a 100% Pink Bourbon Las Perlitas."

"In this iteration, the small lots are made up of producers in the following municipalities: Garzon, Gigante and Pitalito."
