Medium-Light Roast

Rio Azul


STAFF PICK 2022 & 2023 🏆

Rich, full body. Rye aroma. Tastes of milk chocolate.


“We’ve had the pleasure of working with the co-op from which we’ve sourced Rio Azul for close to two decades now. It’s still a personal favorite. It delivers a vibrant clean flavor that properly showcases why Rio Azul is one of our longest running single origins here at Dillanos.”

– Bjorn Dhaese, QC Supervisor & Green Coffee Buyer

“This is my favorite of all the coffees available at Dillanos. It is rich, chocolatey, and has a full body that still feels like on the tongue. French Press is the way I brew Rio Azul, but it tastes great brewed in a Chemex too.”

– Tyler, Roaster

Frequently Asked Questions

Which Grind Should I Choose?

We offer seven different grind options with most of our coffees.
  • Whole Bean
  • Drip, Pour Over & Chemex (the most common option for home use)
  • Coarse Drip (for some commercial brewers)
  • French Press
  • Toddy / Cold Brew
  • Espresso
  • Home Espresso (compatible with most home espresso machines, which require a slightly coarser grind than commercial espresso machines)
You can choose the grind that best matches the method you’ll be using to brew your coffee.  However, if you need more information to drill down on exactly which one will suit your needs, please head over to watch this video made by our Director of Coffee.

What’s One Harvest Project?

In 2005, Dillanos Coffee Roasters created the One Harvest Project to enhance the transparency and sustainability of our coffee supply chain. Our staff personally travel the globe to find opportunities to facilitate educational resources at every level of the supply chain that will enhance quality and yield. We felt that it was important to include the farmer at the negotiation table in order to ensure prices that are not just fair but profitable. Read more >>>

    I need cream in my coffee. But not with Rio Azul. This coffee is so enjoyable that we don’t need or want to add anything to it. This is our go-to morning coffee now.

    Over the years Ive tried 1 lb. bags of so many other options, but keep coming back to Rio Azul and the 5 pounder. Love it! Double double espresso for my morning, with huge whiskey sized ice cubes and a little milk and splash of vanilla creamer. Now go kick some butt at work!
