About this coffee
Los Volcanes gets its name from the farm and washing station where this coffee is produced. After many tests with fertilisers, low yields and poor nutrition levels, Josué Morales who runs Los Volcanes decided to switch to full organic and develop his own natural fertilisers. Since then, his coffee trees have sprung back to life and he’s been able to share these learnings with other farmers in the area. As an espresso, this coffee has a velvety rich texture with good body and low-to-mild acidity making for a well-balanced cup.
