More about Volcan Azul Yellow Honey Espresso
Year on year we are more than proud to showcase the excellent work that Alejo at Volcan Azul produces. Every coffee is meticulously managed from seed to processing. Coffee cherries are diligently measured for sugar content (brix) and only picked once the target brix level is reached indicating full maturation of the coffee. As part of a larger area of land that includes preserved rainforest, they are very passionate about having a positive impact on the environment at Volcan Azul. They’ve also secured an area of rainforest in the Osa peninsula known for holding 2.5% of the earth's biodiversity. This guarantees the protection of this area and safety of the unique ecology in Costa Rica.
This lot is processed as yellow honey. A mechanical washer is used to remove 50% of the mucilage. The coffee is laid on raised beds to dry slowly whilst being covered at night to prevent added humidity.
