Brand Logo

Founded 1970

And part of Volcafe's 170+ year history.

Volcafe operates two companies in Costa Rica: Café Capris, the exporting company, is the largest coffee exporter of the country; Beneficios Volcafe, the industrial operations company, operates four wet mills and one dry mill located in the main coffee-producing regions. Our milling operations are supported by a wide network of over 140 receiving stations, strategically located within each coffee community, to provide logistic support to farmers.​

In the regions where Beneficios Volcafe does not source coffee cherries, Café Capris nurtures strategic alliances with green coffee suppliers, allowing us to source coffee from all eight Costa Rican denominations.​

Ninety percent of our coffee is responsibly sourced, whether through our own scheme or external certifications.

All coffee is milled and then cupped on a daily basis, with 100-400 cups cupped daily. 

We export everything from undergrades to 90+ microlots.
