Costa Rica - Volcan Azul - Typica - Red Honey

Regular price $26.95
It's no secret that we're fans of Alejo and his coffees, in fact, who isn't. There's a reason Volcan Azul coffees can be found in the best roasteries across the world.
This year we've purchased a Red Honey Typica. Where last year's Anaerobic Washed process had subtlety and delicacy, this years lot eschews that for fruitiness and flavour. It's a loud coffee which jumped out at the cupping table, great aroma and acidity paired with the cup structure Volcan Azul is known for, it's a belter.


Our long coffee tradition makes us strive for excellence in the
entire process. It all begins with the selection of coffee varieties
that can yield the quality we seek, followed by the utmost careful
monitoring of our crops. Then, during the coffee harvest, we only
select the coffee grains with the right level of ripeness to deliver
the desired quality to pass onto our micro-coffee mill where we
carefully control every detail of the process. By handling small
batches that come exclusively from our plantations we are able
to achieve a high degree of traceability for each one of the micro-
lots we process. There are particular micro-climates where our
plantations are located, partly due to the large extensions of
rainforest we preserve, that contribute to making our coffee grains
