The incredible Costa Rican landscape is one of the most diverse in the world and Volcan Azul is a farm we fell in love with many season ago. Alejo produces a range of outstanding coffees and his natural processed lots are real favourites. This year, expect sweet and complex flavour, with a refined note of dried fig that is irresistibly smooth.

The Cup

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.

About The 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.

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.

The Process

The process for this lot starts when cherries are still on the tree. By constantly measuring the Brix sugar content level, Alejo and his team seek to identify the ideal moment to pick the coffee. Cherries are then sorted and transferred whole to raised beds for slow drying.
