Like an energy bar packed with chocolate, sweet roasted nuts, caramelized popcorn, our signature #phantomespresso is smooth easy drinking coffee, sweet but not bitter, mild acidity that lifts up its core sweetness flavor.
Roasted to the right balance, suitable for cafe primary espresso, home users of #filterbrew #pourover #frenchpress and #batchbrewdrip
We like it best at a ratio of a single shot to 4oz milk, then a double shot to 8oz for best results.

La Perla Negra coffee, or “The Black Pearl” is single origin coffees produced in the mountains of Chiquimula and Zacapa. The department of Chiquimula is coloquially known as La Perla de Oriente due to its beautiful landscapes and architecture as well as the beauty of the people who live there.
Chiquimula is known for being the cradle of art and artists as many of Guatemala’s best poets, writers, singers, musicians come from there. Esquipulas is a municipality located inside this department and is known for its Black Christ, a wooden image of Christ now housed in the Cathedral Basilica of Esquipulas.
For this reason, this coffee is named Perla Negra.
The work between Caravela and producers responsible for Perla Negra started as a result of many cupping sessions to determine the perfect balance between the sweetness of chocolate, panela and yellow fruit acidity found in this full bodied coffee
