Luna Azul, meaning “blue moon”, is named for its strong flavor of blueberries and dark chocolate. “It will take you to the moon,” he says proudly. After one week of fermentation in cherry in open tanks, it is depulped without water to keep the mucilage (the sticky part of the cherry together with the bean) this allows Andres to get 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.
