Adrano is an intense, complex coffee that has won over 17 international awards for drip coffee and espresso formulas, including a Golden Bean USA award for espresso. The unique terroir imparts a unique flavor profile that is an interesting combination of sharp, bright elements with earthy and floral tones and a hint of chocolate. Body is high and smooth, and the appeal to the palate is broad because of the three varieties. In our dark "Deep Forest" roast it is surprising buttery in both flavor and mouthfeel, with hints of caramel and lightly toasty aroma. Our top-selling single origin coffee since 2008!
8 oz, choice of Medium Roast or Harlequin Roast, our own custom Deep Forest roast blended with City Roast, capturing the full essence of this coffee across the roasting spectrum.
There is no other terroir in the world similar to the unique microclimate of Pocos de Caldas, which is angled perfectly toward the sun. Pocos de Caldas receives sharply divided day and night periods that begin with early morning sun full-on until 4 pm, when the sun suddenly is cut off by passing across the rim of the crate at the top of the mountain, triggering a burst of energy (sugar) conversion into flavor in the beans. The soil is an enriched combination of volcanic minerals and rainforest soil, giving the coffee an abundace of nutrition and minerals. The coffees consist of a variety of unusual Arabica sub-types, including golden-fruited Catuai.
These coffees are sustainably grown, UTZ Certified, and direct-trade. Volcano Coffee Company also practices an innovative reinterpretation of "shade-grown" coffee: instead of interplanting hardwood trees with their coffee (which is of limited usefulness for wildlife due to lack of underbrush and biodiversity), they preserve wide strips of intact rainforest between different planting areas. This lets the coffee get the right amount of sun, protects biodiversity, and provides undisturbed habitat for wildlife.

The Araku Valley of India
India's coffee tradition goes back 400 years or more, when a variety called Kent was first established in the Southern Hills. Arabicas predominated until the blight of 1870, when growers needed to hybridize to resistant varieties. The resultant strains had genes from Liberica and other unique, resistant species.
