Volcan Azul is a truly remarkable coffee estate located in the Alajuela region of Costa Rica and overseen by Don Alejo Castro. The fifth generation of his family to tend to the land, Alejo is an incredibly knowledgeable farmer, and the estate has a rich history which can be clearly traced back to the late 19th century.
The farm produces a vast variety of cultivars and varietals, such as Catuai, Caturra, Obata, Villa Sarchi and Gesha. Alejo continues to propagate new varietals every season, with the objective to continuously experiment and add diversity to his harvest.
This natural coffee is packed full of fruitiness, with prune and jujube fruity notes. A medium full-bodied cup that makes a jammy espresso & juicy cup.
