The moon guides the rituals of thousands of farmers and coffee producers throughout Colombia and the world. As this celestial body moves through its different phases, it dictates the best times to carry out certain chores, such as planting, harvesting and fertilizing. These ancestral traditions are passed down from generation to generation, and although they are not spoken off often, these practices have a tremendous influence on the way many farmers carefully cultivate their crop.
Resplandor Lunar (Lunar Radiance) is the first in a new series of coffees inspired by the magical affinity between the universe and agriculture. Our first offering of 2021 is actually composed of four exceptional blends that feature the best coffees from the departments of Cauca, Huila, Nariño and Quindío. These coffees were selected by some of the very best cuppers from around the world, who we have the great fortune to work with.
Every origin was roasted separately with the objective of letting each respective profile develop on their own, before being mixed with the other lots in order to achieve the sensory impact we were hoping for. The resulting cup has a brilliant acidity and notes of spearmint and honey.
