Every Sip has a story

bring to your home a little bit of ours…

“My first good coffee in the North Country was at PB&Js Café in Lowville. I was on a date with my husband; they have an amazing menu and different coffees. I ordered a bagel and a latte, then I saw something that brightened my day- their coffee of the month was Colombian Coffee! I don’t even remember the taste, but I remember how I felt drinking something that was grown in my homeland, harvested by my own people, hand-picked by hard working farmers in the beautiful mountains of Colombia. Coffee is a symbol of energy, family, and love. But Colombian coffee is more for me – it’s part of my life, every sip has a history and I decided take part in that.

I would like to say I convinced my husband to start roasting coffee, but in reality, it was his idea – by encouraging me in doing something I’m passionate about. What could be better than keeping my job as a 24/7 mom and creating my own business roasting beans from my beloved homeland in Colombia? I’m still learning, practicing, and drinking our coffee to bring to your home a little bit of ours.”

Iris’ Story

Blooming Potential

Conner, New York, USA — Iris, Bogota, Colombia


Conner and Iris met in Jersey City in 2017 and travelled together to Iris’s home in Bogota, Colombia in 2019 where they married and lived for a year. Missing their home and family in America, they flew back in 2020 and received their beautiful baby girl, Bella Biolsi, in August of the same year. Soon after, a dream was born to create something that honored and supported the roots of both Iris and Conner – a coffee roasting business in Northern New York that sourced specialty beans exclusively from Colombia.


Azahar — the Colombian farmers’ term for

the coffee flower in bloom


Blooming coffees, Blooming Families

Azahar is the story of blooming coffees and families. It was born from a desire to enlighten your home with delicious coffee while supporting the hands that work hard every day that make every sip possible.

Azahar Roast House purchases Colombian coffee exclusively from small, regional conglomerates and fair-trade partners that allow workers to live healthy lifestyles. From the hands toiling at its source to the mouths taking those first, hot sips, Azahar knows coffee has blooming potential.


Your coffee, your life, & your story should bloom, too.
