A Visit to Cafes De La Luna
Micro-Farming from the Seedling to the Cup
While in Boquete, Panama we toured Cafes De La Luna, a micro-lot coffee farm where coffee is produced in a simple and rustic manner. Cafes De La Luna employs Larizo, a Ngobe Bugle tribesmen, who incorporates years of experience in traditional farming into the lunar art of coffee growing. Check out our video tour and see the entire process from harvest to the coffee we roasted on-site and cupped.
Cafes De La Luna
Larizo proudly shared that he spoke three languages: Ngobe, Bugle, and Spanish, and is learning his fourth, English. Larizo recognizes that as his children receive an education, they will be the first generation introduced to technology, changing the culture as they know it. He had mixed feelings about his children not carrying on traditional coffee farming, but had a huge hope for their futures. Casa Ruiz 2010
