At the end of the 18th century, when coffee production was in it’s early beginnings in the Americas… 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.

More than a century has passed, today the fourth and fifth generations of descendants of these visionary farmers still produce coffee within the same ideals of excellency that inspired their ancestors. They produce one of the best pure coffees of the world with its Brand “F.C.J. Volcan Azul” on the slopes of the Poás Volcano in Costa Rica.

The production process starts with the planting of the coffee trees on highly fertile volcanic soil above 1200 meters above sea level (SHB). It continues with a meticulous process at the coffee mill and finally ends with a strict preparation of the export qualities.

Nowadays, the descendants of Don Alejo C. and Don Wilhelm want to enhance further 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 to inherit to our future generations.

Today, the descendants of Don Alejo C. & Don Wilhelm want to continue furthering the principles of quality inherited from the founders; but also play a large role in the conservation of

natural resources and rainforest. This is being done through the acquisition natural rainforest, protected lands and conservation of existing land. The family is extremely passionate about conservation and in fact 80% of the land owned by the family is set aside and only 20% of it is cultivated. These are the types of contributions we want to make towards mankind, we want future generations to inherit this level of awareness.
