We are thrilled to share with you this special offering from our Rare Microlot series hailing from the slopes of the Turrialba volcano on the Aquiares Estate. Run by the Robelo Family since 1992, Aquiares understand the importance of the natural volcanic soil present in Turrialba, any organic matter from pruning is left to feed soil microbes thus providing organic nutrients for the plants. The diverse shade trees, totaling over 40 different species across the farm, also cool the ground allowing the coffee to slowly ripen, and let all the sugars from the mucilage fully absorb into the bean, increasing cup quality.

It’s impressive to see naturally processed coffees coming from a farm in this region of Costa Rica. The high humidity makes it difficult to create the right drying conditions for natural coffees but Diego has proven Aquiares could do it. They sourced a greenhouse from a neighbor and after trial and error, connected an air flow system to maintain a constant air flow of 36°C, allowing them to produce natural and honey processed coffees.
