|Origin:||West Valley, Costa Rica|
|Producer:||Alejo Castro Kahle|
Volcan Azul is located on the edge of the Poás Volcano, where coffees have been planted on fertile soil since the mid-19th century. Alejo Castro Kahle is a passionate coffee grower who has set a goal to produce some of the best coffees in the world. Our natural processed microlot has flavour notes of dried figs, vanilla and apricot. This is a complex cup with great balance in the flavour profile.
We keep coming back to the same varietal and process every year. Alejo is producing outstanding coffees and we find this one to be his very best. It represents Costa Rica so well.
The West Valley is Costa Ricas historical production region. Most of its coffees are grown under protective shade, and produced on fertile clay. The valleys landscape is structured by three volcanoes and a gentle tectonic depression. This privileged land on the Pacific Coast has well-defined dry and wet seasons.
Volcan Azul is located on the edges of the Poás Volcano. For 5 generations, the producers have continued making coffee with the objective in mind of achieving excellence and superior quality. The descendants of the founders families are acquiring natural tropical forest in order to protect and preserve the environment, and to reduce air contamination and global warming. It is their way of contributing to a better future for the generations to come.
