Some information about the farm
“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 level 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, which contribute to making our coffee grains unique.”
“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 has passed and today 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. Volcan 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 (SHB). It continues with a meticulous process at the coffee mill and finally ends with a strict preparation of the export qualities, which are roasted to reach the final consumer.
Nowadays, the descendants of Don Alejo C. and Don Wilhelm want to enhance further 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 to inherit to our future generations. (from http://www.volcanazul.com/en/tradition)
