Your Coffee on 4th December. Volcan Azul. Costa Rica

The beautiful country of Costa Rica, found between the Atlantic and Pacific, is home to an incredible array of coffee producers. Volcan Azul is one of the oldest, with more than 100 years of history.

Today, producer Alejo Castro continues to push the boundaries of what is possible at this superb farm. The West Valley is the most prominent coffee growing region in Costa Rica. Most of its coffees are grown under protective shade, and produced on fertile clay. The mountainous landscape is dominated by three volcanoes and a gentle tectonic depression, while the Pacific weather patterns create well-defined dry and wet seasons.

Our natural processed lot is intense and fruit-forward. Notes of dried fig, blueberry, and apricot are sweetly balanced. Fragrant vanilla and lavender will appear as it cools, with a defined complexity that is a signature of the farm.
