Finca Chispita is situated in Cirri Sur, Naranjo, and is part of the Alajuela province. This award winning Costa Rica farm is the result of the hard work and dedication of Don Carlos. He and his wife, Diana own five small farms and La Perla Del Cafe Micromill —”micro” being the key word here, not only produces about 300 bags a year, but their dedication to quality means they focus on quality over quantity in all ways. They work with the exact same group of pickers every year, a group of 45 indigenous people from Panama, who travel to the farms for work every season, and with whom they keep in touch, like family, the rest of the year.
This year the farm produced a Kenia SL28 as a natural and golden honey process, a change from their normal honeys or washed process coffees.
He was the first producer in Costa Rica to be given SL-28 and rather than hoard the special variety for himself, he has distributed seeds to friends and neighbours for the past few years. Don Carlos believes that growing non-traditional varieties, in addition to focusing on honey and natural processing, will be what allows him to differentiate La Perla’s coffee from others in the region.
