Our El Perezoso (‘The Sloth’) lots come from Coopro Naranjo, located in Costa Rica’s West Valley, an area under the influence of Pacific weather patterns. The programme offers agronomy and processes training and support to its members. The producers need to fulfil the requirements of the coop for their coffee to be considered for microlots and, if successful, they receive a cash advance of 110,000 colones (approx. $180). The specialty quality cherries destined for microlots are delivered directly to the coop.

At the coop, the microlots are dried on African (raised) beds. Yellow honeys are transported in water to the table. 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 the honeys, 18 days for the naturals.
