WE BUY COFFEE FROM
We search for Colombia’s best coffees by combining a bit of science with the senses.
We listen to what the producers we work with have to say, spending as much time on the road as we do in the lab. We recognize and value their experience. We also aren’t afraid to step in and help when we see room for improvement.
In exchange for their dedication to producing truly great coffee, we pay higher, stable prices, because regardless of what the market says, good coffee farming should be profitable. In the process, we establish enduring relationships.
Traditionally, Colombia has always exported its best coffee. Contributing to that tradition, we source ours from farmers all across the country and ship it around the world. But with a roastery in Quindío and a couple cafés in Bogotá, we do our best to serve as much of it here as we can. Because Colombia deserves to drink its best coffee, too.
WHAT THEY SAY ABOUT US
“Azahar es un buen ejemplo para quienes tienen intenciones de abrir cafés, para quienes entienden que un café es uno de los lugares de reunión más maravillosos y más visitados en ciudades como París, Buenos Aires y Madrid. Bogotá necesita más lugares como este, que exalten nuestra cultura cafetera.”
“Each lot is exposed to a rigorous and comprehensive cupping analysis performed by dedicated coffee experts on the road and at Azahar’s cupping lab and roasting works… Azahar’s team uses above standard benchmarks, which many of its coffees exceed, placing Azahar among the best coffees in the world.”
