Grown on the slopes of Poás Volcano in Costa Rica, Volcan Azul placed as National Winners in Costa Rica’s 2016 Cup of Excellence competition. Volcan Azul is a family run farm operated by Alejo Castro Kahle and his father Fernando Castro Jiménez and mother Vivian Kahle. Both sides of the family have worked in the coffee industry in Costa Rica since the 19th century, and they have run the Volcan Azul micro-mill together for 15 years.
This is a special coffee and one we are proud to be able to offer. Coffees from Volcan Azul consistently place as some of the finest coffees in the world. In addition to producing exceptional coffee, the family is committed to conservation of the natural resources of Costa Rica. They have placed over 1500 hectares of the rain forest in the Osa Peninsula into ecological preservation. This region in Costa Rica holds 2.5% of the earth’s biodiversity.
Available as ground or whole bean (our recommendation).
