Since the mid-2000s, the country has seen an increasing focus on the establishment of micro-mills, aiming to increase production of traceable, high quality lots of coffee such as this one.
Finca Volcán Azul is a fifth-generation farm in the Tarrazú region. They’ve reserved part of the farm to produce micro-batches of a range of varietals, using a variety of coffee processes to highlight the unique qualities of each.
Eight years ago, with the help of two agronomists, Carlos Mario Rodriguez and Orlando Mora, they began testing different lines of the Sarchimor varietal, which is a hybrid of Villa Sarchí and Timor. They wanted to find their own line that produced high cup quality, disease resistance, and a high yield, in the actual conditions of their farm.
They’ve named the varietal that resulted San Isidro, after the town near the farm where they were tested – and that’s the washed process of this varietal which we’re showcasing in this delivery.
