Rob Says: Hallelujah we found a Peruvian new crop lot. Two months later than previous years, and after refusing lot after lot, we did manage to pick this pearl out of the haystack.
LA PERLA is the brand that represents the Café Mujer project of Norcafe. The project seeks that women through training and support can improve the quality of the cup, and by good farmer practices and performance can obtain better income for their family.
A word on the processing: The coffee cherries are picked and fermented in bags for about 15 hours, then depulped, and again the parchment is fermented for 18-24 hours in bags, then dried on raised beds under cover. Drying takes up to a month.
