Luna is a small coffee roastery outside Vancouver, Canada. If you’re hyper focused on seasonal coffees, diverse varieties and processes, juicy, bright and articulate light coffees, you’ve made it to the right part of the internet. Have a look around & if you’re ready to go all in, sign-up to get two unique coffees each month with a coffee focussed zine we write, it’s what we do best!
This week, for the first time, Vancouver is hosting the World Aeropress Championship and we thought it would be timely to share what has been our go-to aeropress recipe for nearly a decade.
Our recipe is in the style of a lot of competition recipes you find used in the World Aeropress Competition: updosed, cool temp, fast brew times.
If you've been with us for awhile, you can likely rattle off a few hybrid varieties (Castillo, Colombia or Ruiru 11 anyone?) and you possibly appreciate their ability to be more resilient in the face of climate change while still tasting great. How do hybrids actually become hybrids though? Is there any GMO meddling involved? Absolutely not. Does it take awhile? You bet. Here's a handy how-to guide using Parainema as an example.
Some of the most talented coffee growers we know are also among the smallest.
At Luna, the coffees we source and roast are the result of picking up the phone, conversations on DMs and sharing that process of our small company buying from talented people.
A modern look at sourcing
Coffee is bought & sold using archaic, colonial systems that are working as designed. This is doing farmers no favours. The goal for our tiny but mighty company is to resist these systems and communicate why and how we’re doing that with you.
