La Luna is from a small progressive and quality focused cooperative called Puente Tarrazu. It is located at high altitudes in the famous region of Tarrazu. Find flavour notes of Red Grape & Caramel Nut bar with sweet Dried Fig aroma.

Thanks to the high altitude of the Tarrazu region, the coffee cherries mature at a slower speed, producing a higher concentration of sugars.

Farmer Rudolfo Rivera is experimenting with various types of honey and semi-washed coffees, but for this particular lot, he has naturally processed the coffee on raised beds, to bring a little more fruitiness to the cup.

Process

The ripest cherries are hand-picked from the trees and stored in bags. At the end of a day, the bags are loaded onto trucks and delivered to the wet mill where they are measured (by volume in fanegas – a standardised Costa Rican unit of volume that equals to 20 cubic feet) and cleaned. The cherries are then placed onto raised drying beds and dried over the course of 12-15 days.
