Costa Rica specialty Coffee Producers & Exporters
With over 200 years of tradition trading specialty coffee, we believe the best way to honour our ancestors is by producing and exporting only great coffee. Our farms are located on the slopes of Barva and Poás Volcano in Central and West Valley and in Saints region. Our Specialty Coffee comes in 4 different preparations:
F.C.J. VOLCAN AZUL (GRAN RESERVA)
Comes from a limited selection of exclusive micro and nano batches with unique exotic qualities that come from our menu of varieties such as Caturra, Geisha, Kenya SL-28, Villasarchi, Sarchimor, Mocca, among others. These come in different process presentations like washed, honey or natural.
A brand that has been in our family since the mid 1800´s its also a selection of the best microlots from our Central Valley farm.
From the region of our farm located in the Saints area with true characteristics of Tarrazu.
From the region of our farms in West and Central Valley it’s a well balanced sweet cup.
At the beginning of the 19th century, when coffee production was in its early beginnings in America, without knowing it, two pioneers and entrepreneurs, Alejo C. Jiménez in Costa Rica and Wilhelm Kahle in the south of Mexico, shared the same dream: “To produce the best coffee in the world” to satisfy the new demanding European gourmet market.
Today, descendants of these visionary farmers still produce coffee within the same ideals of excellency and top quality that inspired their ancestors that continue with the tradition in Costa Rica.
Today, the production process starts with the planting of the coffee trees on highly fertile volcanic soil above 1400 meters above sea level (SHB) in 3 different regions from Costa Rica.
Nowadays, the descendants of Don Alejo C. and Don Wilhelm want to further enhance the principles of quality inherited by our founders by adding the value of conservancy of natural resources, through the acquisition of extensions of natural rainforest for its protection and conservation. These facts, not just words, are small actions taken by one family to reduce air contamination and global warming. This is the contribution we want to make to mankind, this is the new awareness we want our future generations to inherit.
Alejo C. Jimenez started together with his family the coffee tradition in the mid 19. hundreds

For our family, the conservation of natural resources is of prime value, which is why we are committed to protecting vast extensions of tropical rainforest in the Costa Rica since the 80’s. We have come to acquire over 1,500 hectares of rainforest for ecological preservation in areas where we grow our coffee as well as in the Osa Peninsula, a region in the South of
Costa Rica known for holding 2.5% of the Earth’s Biodiversity, proud to know that our family is contributing to reducing the effects of global warming. This is the attitude towards the environment that we want to pass on to our children and future generations of our family.
My best microlot should be the last one I produce in my life
