Cafés de la Luna is grown, harvested, processed and roasted at Finca Dos Jefes, a coffee farm that bases it’s farming schedule around the lunar calendar. Due to our farming practices, we appropriately named our coffee brand: Cafés de la Luna (Coffee of the Moon), and it all starts off as a cherry on a tree.

After being hand-picked during harvesting season, the coffee cherries are dried with the skin and fruit intact on raised drying beds for “natural” processing. The sun preserves the natural flavors of the coffee.  The cherries are dried to 11% moisture content and then placed in repose for a minimum of 3 months before they are peeled and the green beans are ready for roasting. The workers are proud of continuing the traditional ways of growing premium coffee.
