Welcome to Moon Mountain (Scroll to bottom to see a video)
Our coffee is unique in that it is, "Estate Grown and Processed". We grow and/or process all the coffee we sell on own our farm in Costa Rica. This means we control everything that has been done from the plant to the roasted bean.
We specialize in coffees from a remote area of Costa Rica. Moon Mountain Coffee, is located in small village called El Carmen, (not on most maps), which is in the very south of Costa Rica, above San Vito, Coto Brus, in the Talamanca Mountains. We are about 5 kilometers West of Panama ("as the crow flies"). Altitudes range from 1100 to 1600 meters. We are located in the same climate and mountain range as the famous Boquete of Panama, and about equidistance from the border.
While coffee has been grown here for more than fifty years, having such remoteness, it is less famous than other coffee producing areas.This is an amazing coffee farming community which I feel has been overlooked by "Specialty" coffee buyers, because this area of Costa Rica was last to develop infrastructure.
We have owned this farm for about 14 years during which, we also sold our coffee to the co-ops, rarely making any profit, and usually loosing money.
We have coffee varieties such as Marseillesa, Montecristo, Kenya SL-28, Ethiopian, Gesha (Panama Seed), and the rarest of all Laurina, a naturally growing low caffeine coffee. where absolutely no chemical processing is done to remove caffeine.
MicroganicTM During our many years of producing fresh, 100% Arabica, coffee from the Costa Rican Rainforest, we have developed cultivating services that we call, MicroganicTM farming. These agricultural services allow us to create delicious coffee for you and other growers for whom we also produce coffee and tea, using organic matter. We carefully select Rainforest soil and other biological material containing disease-fighting microbes, fungi, nematodes and bacteria. We also inoculate the coffee plants with a natural spray to help protect them from harmful infestations, disease and contamination.
