Costa Rica Volcan Azul Geisha Coffee (#008)
|Dom. Republic||Ecuador||El Salvador||Guatemala|
After spending a number of years in Japan and the UK, Ralf Rueller founded The Barn back in 2010. He pioneered specialty coffee in an uncompromising way in Germany by focusing on the product, farm relationships, roasting and sharing knowledge that he leart along the way. Such factors helped The Barn establish their international reputation for quality and earned them the accolade for the best independent roaster in Europe and the Middle East. The pedigree that The Barn holds goes without saying, and equally, The Barn have a policy of never featuring in external multi-roaster subscriptions, until now - you're in for an absolute treat.
The West Valley is Costa Ricas historical production region. Most of its coffees are grown under protective shade, and produced on fertile clay. The valleys landscape is structured by three volcanoes and a tectonic depression. This privileged land on the Pacific Coast has well-defined dry and wet seasons. Volcan Azul is located on the edges of the Poás Volcano.
For 5 generations, the producers have continued making coffee with the objective in mind of achieving excellence and superior quality. The descendants of the founders families are acquiring natural tropical forest in order to protect and preserve the environment, and to reduce air contamination and global warming. It is their way of contributing to a better future for the generations to come.
With this natural coffee, expect a rich creamy body with a hint of boozy ripeness, high acidity balanced out with high levels of sweetness.
