I love this coffee because its so clean and pure every time. Little to no bitterness, perfect amount of sweetness, and an all around great balanced cup. One of the few coffees I can drink all day every day. Also love it on cold brew.
I got hooked on this bean when I visited a local Phoenix breakfast spot in 2016. Ever since I’ve ordered online & had it shipped to San Francisco! I can’t wait to move back to AZ & be able to stop in the shop in Tempe for a taste & to shop! Love my Cortez beans!!
I love this coffee. My whole family loves it, and I ship it to them abroad. My father is a big coffee drinker, and I have not seen him this impressed with coffee before this one. Worth the cost, would pay more to have it in stock for life!
ABOUT THE FARM
F.C.J. VOLCAN AZUL
At the end of the 19th century, when coffee production was in its early beginnings in America, without knowing it, two pioneers and entrepreneurs, Alejo C. Jiménez in Costa Rica and Wilhelm Kahle in the south of Mexico, shared the same dream: “To produce the best coffee in the world” to satisfy the new demanding European gourmet market.
More than a century later, the fourth and fifth generations of descendants of these visionary farmers still produce coffee within the same ideals of excellency and top quality that inspired their ancestors. They produce one of the best pure coffees of the world with its brand “F.C.J. Volcán Azul” on the slopes of the Poás Volcano in Costa Rica.
Today, the production process starts with the planting of the coffee trees on highly fertile volcanic soil, above 1200 meters above sea level. It continues with a meticulous process at the coffee mill, and finally ends with a strict preparation of the export qualities.
Today, the descendants of Don Alejo C. and Don Wilhelm want to enhance further the principles of quality inherited by the founders by adding the value of conservancy of natural resources, through the acquisition of extensions of natural rainforest for its protection and conservation. These facts, not just words, are small actions taken by one family to reduce air contamination and global warming. This is the contribution we, collectively, want to make to mankind, this is the awareness we inherited and want to pass forward to our future generations.
