Volcan Azul is in a class of its own. Five generations of quality focused and conservationist minded coffee producers have created the unique experience that we get through this coffee today.

All facets of harvesting and processing happen in a meticulous way that allows them to have a high degree of control over quality and consistency. All coffee cherries are picked when they are at an ideal ripeness of between 22% and 28% brix (sugar content). Not only is the quality of coffee a focus but also the conservation of the surrounding lands.

They have acquired 1,500 acres of rainforest and dedicated it for preservation which helps in promoting biodiversity and reducing the effects of climate change. 

We’ve really enjoyed working with Alejo and family the last few years and are proud to showcase their coffees to you.

Espresso Single Origin: Gerbota

$22.00

Country Of Origin: Ethiopia
Region: Gedeo
Process: Washed

Varietal: Heirloom
Altitude: 1950
Farmer/Producer/Mill: Gerbota Washing Station
Flavour Note: Blackcurrant, Green Apple, Raisin

Gerbota Washing Station - Coming from one of the more popular coffee growing regions within Ethiopia, Yirgacheffe. This coffee reminds us of the great quality that is produced there every year. Yirgacheffe meaning ‘land of many springs’ and water being one of the more important factors to produce great quality coffee makes for the ideal environment resulting in consistent harvests every year. This paired with the relatively high altitudes and rich fertile soil you’ve got yourself probably the best conditions in the world for high-quality coffee production.

As with most coffees in Ethiopia, the farmers take their coffee to the washing station to sell, this is separated into different qualities and flavour profiles. The coffee at Gerbota Washing Station is fermented without water then washed with fresh water to remove mucilage before being dried for 18 days on raised beds to achieve the target moisture of 11.5%.

From the home of coffee to a cup in your home, enjoy every sip.

Espresso Single Origin: Baroida Estate

$22.00

Country Of Origin: Papua New Guinea
Region: Eastern Highlands
Process: Honey 

Varietal: Arusha , Bourbon, Mundo Novo, Typica
Altitude: 1,700-1,850
Farmer/Producer/Mill: Colbran family
Flavour Note: Cranberry, Candied Lemon, Hazelnut

We were so impressed with Baroida Estate last year that we just had to get our hands on their coffee again. This year the Honey process stood out to us, having a great amount of fruit flavour balanced out with complex acidity.

The name ‘Baroida’ comes from the Baroida spirit, believed by locals to reside in a large river rock sitting in one of the main rivers flowing through the estate. Meticulous separation for quality control helps maintain the high quality of the estate’s coffee. After careful sorting, the cherry is pulped on disk pulpers. Then, it dry-ferments in vats for approximately 36 hours. Water is pumped into the vats in a circular motion to naturally agitate the coffee and remove any remaining mucilage. Still a relatively new origin in terms of specialty coffee, PNG offers us a new coffee experience and one that is comparatively easier to source and has a lower carbon footprint given the proximity to Australia.

A great espresso to drink or if you like makes an interesting milky coffee too."
