*the fresh handpicked coffee cherries are brought to the wet processing plant for flotation and cleaning to keep the fresh fruits clean before fermentation. We then put the coffee cherries into a fermentation tank and exposed it to
direct sunlight for a long time in the dry season of Costa Rica.
The fermentation temperature can be maintained between 25-30 degrees Celsius. They conducted anaerobic fermentation for 5 days and monitored the fermentation environment temperature and Brix. The value and pH

Volcan Azul is an outstanding coffee farm located in the Alajuela region of Costa Rica's western
valley, managed by Alejo Castro. Alejo is the fifth generation of the Castro Kahle family, a
knowledgeable coffee grower with a rich history on the farm, dating back to the mid-to-late 19th
Today, more than a century later, the fifth generation descendants of these visionary coffee
growers have inherited their great-grandparents’ vision and continue to produce exceptional,
high-quality specialty coffee. They produce the best quality specialty coffee in the world on the
slopes of the Poas volcano under the brand "F.C.J. Volcan Azul".
Poas Volcano is located in southern Costa Rica, where is known for having 2.5% of the planet’s biodiversity.
They protect it by acquiring stretches of natural rainforest. Since the early1980s,
they have protected and cared for over 1,500 hectares of natural rainforest surrounding
the farm. These are facts, not just words, small actions one family is taking to reduce air pollution
and global warming. This is their contribution to mankind, and this is why we admire them. We
are proud of our partnership with Volcan Azul. Their efforts in environmental protection have
allowed the farm to maintain a very healthy ecosystem.
