La Luna ("the moon" in Spanish) is a farm operated by the Seevers family. TarrazĂș...the name alone evokes images of majestic mountain slopes, misty valleys, and of course the farms of this region where some of the most famous coffee in the world is produced. Said to be a result of the warm, fragrant breezes which ascend the rugged slopes from the valleys far below, this coffee's unmistakable character has led it to be classified among the finest in the world.

Sweet, round, with an agreeable balance of dry acidy notes and rich roastiness. Perhaps a bit shallow in range and dimension. Acidity in a supporting role but still present, luscious body and noteworthy complexity, all a testament to excellent green coffee and skillful roasting. A rich and spicy cup. An excellent representative of a classic Tarrazu coffee!

Tarrazu is another fantastic addition to your cellar. Excellent component in espresso!

Roast: Somewhere in the vacinity of City+ to Full City, Tarrazu is best roasted through first crack, then stop. That's where it is at its peak flavor! Some may be compelled to roasting it dark, but you risk losing the profile that distinquishes it, besides Costa Ricans do not have much body in darker roasts (or lighter roasts for that matter).
