"It will take you to the moon" says Álvaro Andrés Cardona Molina.
No argument here! This coffee features a very intense chocolate-fruit combo that reminds us of chocolate-covered cherries. It is vibrant. It is intense. It is awesome.
Cardona, the latest in a line of family coffee farmers, currently manages his uncle's farm, Villa Lucia. A true tinkerer, Cardona enjoys experimenting with new processes. Luna Azul spent one week of fermentation in cherry in open tanks before depulping without water. Keeping the mucilage (the sticky part of the cherry together with the bean), allowed Cardona to gain a sweeter cup. The beans are then spread onto raised drying beds for 1 to 3 weeks, depending on the weather at the farm, until it reaches 11% moisture.
