The Perla Negra is a full Natural Processed coffee dried on Raised beds from the central valley region of Costa Rica. This coffee is 100% of the Caturra varietal and is grown between 1500-1750 meters. With the uniqueness of this cup you will find a hints of cherry and raspberry upfront, with subtle undertones of honey and caramel. The body on this coffee is very smooth with a clean lingering finish of chocolate and sugar cane like sweetness. This coffee is a very delicate and complex cup.

The following are a few of the flavors to be expected in the cup. Enjoy the cup as it cools and savor these flavors til the last drop!

Dark chocolate

As a single origin espresso this coffee really shines, you get hints of dates, cherry and vanilla, with a lingering bittersweet chocolate, and caramel undertones in the finish


Coffee Review gave us a 92 on this coffee. Big, fruit- and floral-toned. Dark chocolate, black cherry, hazelnut, musky lily, a hint of rye whisky in aroma and cup. Round, resonant acidity; syrupy mouthfeel. Lily and chocolate carry into a deep finish.


This holiday, bring something that will wow the in-laws, and is sure to please all your guests. This coffee is a candid reminder of just how decadent the holidays can be when you want to please and impress a variety of palettes. We love it as a Chemex as well as on espresso and as a Hario V60. Cheers!

Amazing coffee. Incredible sandwiches. Fabulous people. These are the things that make 99 Cups of Coffee in Pacific Beach so crazy good. The owner Broc does not have a coffee background, but that doesn’t mean the man messes around when it comes to making a solid cup of coffee. Opened September 26th, 2014, the crew of twelve is at capacity and ready for the expansion being built in next door.

“I wouldn’t mind having another location,” Broc says. This engineer-turned-coffee shop owner is serious about what he does, candidly sharing “a lot of effort goes into producing that perfect cup of coffee and I’m just trying to do my part.” And he does his part by carrying 100% organic coffees and teas, and having an extensive menu of mouth-watering sandwich options.
