The Azalea is a flower of peculiar yet exquisite aroma, one of nature’s true beauties. The flower like our coffee is a symbol of the unique splendors that made Costa Rica’s Central Valley legendary.
Azalea is produced on farms that transcend this stunning valley of Costa Rica. The strong influence of volcanic soil in the Central Valley combined with the dry, Pacific climate and two very distinct seasons during the course of the year allow for the perfect development of coffee cherries in this region.
