Costa Rica Volcan Azul Black Honey

Country of Origin: Costa Rica
Costa Rica Volcan Azul Black Honey

Tiny Costa Rica has a fantastic coffee industry: stable, consistent, at worst good and tending towards excellent green and highly structured, as well as one of the most biodiverse terrains in all of Latin America. No surprise that a lot of important things go on there; farmers are innovative and great stewards of nature. There seems to be a recent surge in alternate (to traditional washed) processing, especially in regards to “honey” (“miel). This method of partially removing the cherry's pulp and letting it dry/controlled-ferment over as much as a few weeks ensures mild acidity, fruity sweetness and dense flavors. Categories of honey now include white, yellow, red and black, their variance the amount of mucilage left on the seed and the amount of light exposure on raised beds.
We had to try the Black Honey from the fifth-generation steward and outstanding producer Fernando Castro Jiménez at his Volcán Azul farm in Alajuela. The Finca received second place among all selections in the recent 2017 Costa Rica Cup of Excellence. The farm also produces red & yellow honey, conventional washed and fantastic Geisha varietal. The hallmark dense body, sweet florals and stone fruit is all here in the Black Honey. Our lightish roast is ideal for pourover and also makes a rich French Press.

Symphony Latte, by Tyler Hauptman of Sweet Masterpiece
Barista Tyler Hauptman of Sweet Masterpiece (Portland, OR) shows off his chops on Badbeard's Symphony blend coffee.
"I am insatiable! Are you guys coating those beans with something? If so, keep it up. It seems I have never enjoyed a cup of coffee as much as I do now. I go way back in my quest for great coffee. I started 1960-61. I would take a bus into the City then a train down to McNulty's in the Village. I would get these great beans that I would grind up at home. My parents did not understand why I would spend so much on coffee beans when I buy a can of "Chock Full Of Nuts" for $2.89 a pound (16 oz back then in a can). Over the years I followed all the info that was available for brewing the best cup of coffee. I started buying bottle water from Italy to use in my Bunn coffee maker. I even roasted green beans to get the freshest flavor. So fast forward to 2010 in PDX and I am still buy coffee beans from a NY guy. "
