The Cup

Caturra, Natural - Dried Fig. Vanilla. Intense.
Our naturally 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.

Geisha, Anaerobic - Peach. Blackberry. Jasmine.
At brew point, you will already notice intensive notes of ripe peach and blackberry. The anaerobic fermentation creates a rich body with a hint of boozy notes. Expect exciting acidity and high sweetness. Jasmine notes, so recognisable in outstanding geisha, round up the cup profile.

Laurina, Washed - Poached Pear. Chocolate. Smooth.
We love this Laurina lot for its full, complex profile that does not compromise on flavour. Expect notes of poached pear, rich macadamia nut, shortbread, and vanilla. The coffee offers a deliciously smooth mouthfeel, enhanced by gentle natural processing.

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

Processing at Volcan Azul 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.

For the natural process, cherries are picked and meticulously sorted before being transferred to beds for drying.

For our anaerobic Geisha lot, cherries were first transferred to sealed tanks at an average temperature of 15 degrees Celsius. The cherries ferment within the tanks, building complexity and sweetness. The cherries are then naturally dried.

For our washed Laurina lot, the cherries are pulped to remove the skin and mucilage. They are fermented before washing in clean water, creating a clean, balanced cup.
