Farm Process: Volcan Azul Red Honey is grown in the shady slopes of the Poás Volcano region of Costa Rica. There the coffee cherries are picked from the trees and processed using the family traditions of Kahle family spanning over 200 years. The outer layer of the coffee cherry is removed and a sticky substance is left on the bean called "mucilage" containing rich sugars. The beans are left to dry in the sunlight until the mucilage bakes into a red color. As the coffee dries, it develops fruity and complex flavors while still maintaining a clean taste. The coffee is exported directly to us, we roast to perfection and deliver to you.

Farm Details

At the beginning 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. 

Today, descendants of these visionary farmers still produce coffee within the same ideals of excellency and top quality that inspired their ancestors that continue with the tradition in Costa Rica. 

The production process starts with the planting of the coffee trees on highly fertile volcanic soil above 1400 meters above sea level (SHB) in 3 different regions from Costa Rica. 

Nowadays, the descendants of Don Alejo C. and Don Wilhelm want to further enhance the principles of quality inherited by our 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 want to make to mankind, this is the new awareness we want our future generations to inherit.
