El Perezoso (‘The Sloth’) lots come from a Co-operative of farmers from Costa Rica’s West Valley. The co-op has over 2,000 members and has been running its ‘Loma’ micro-lot programme since 2006. The programme offers agronomy and processes training and support to its members.
At the co-op, the micro-lots are dried on African (raised) beds. Yellow honey coffee is transported in water to the table (which allows them to be classified as yellow honey according to the coop standards). The lots are not disturbed at all during the first night but are moved every 20 minutes after that. It takes 10-12 days to dry and 18 days for the naturals.
Why No. 506 – Its the international area code for Costa Rica. You should call them and tell them how amazing their coffee is.
