Aquiares – Turrialba, Costa Rica

1200 masl

Aquiares, the most historic and extensive coffee farm in Costa Rica

The farm was founded in 1890, but its transformation came up a century later by Alfonso Robelo. He was the responsable of a socio-economic revolution, with the creation of a unique partnership: the Community (made up of 3,000 people, only 15% employed by the farm) and Cafetalera Aquiares (grower-miller-exporter), their company.  This worker community is located on the enchanting slopes of the Turrialba volcano, a lush area of forests, rivers, fauna, and bright flora as its Rainforest Alliance certification proves it.

Nowadays Alfonso’s son, Diego, manages the farm. Under his leadership, the farm has taken a fresh approach to specialty coffee. Through excellent agricultural management, embracing new varieties, and experimenting with processing, Aquiares has become a trailblazer among specialty coffee producers in Costa Rica and all of Central America.

  • The coffee cherries is moved into Aquiares’ own mill or Beneficio, the same day that they are picked.
  • The pulp and mucilage is removed, before they are segregated into two qualities using water: sinkers and floaters.
  • Beans are then dried in 36-hour driers – fueled by wood sustainably harvested — until the humidity is lowered to 10.5%.
  • The parchment is removed as a final step and the beans are sorted by size, weight, density and color, before they are bagged for export.

It dedicates 80% of its land to the cultivation of high quality coffee and the remaining 20% to conservation.
