About This Coffee
We are always delighted to have coffees from the Aquiares Estate from Costa Rica as Diego Robelo has been our neighbour for several years and we have visited the farm several times.
This coffee is hand-picked and separated at the mill through a flotation process. Subsequently, the natural drying is divided into three stages; The first is a pre-drying on a ceramic floor for 2 days, then 10 days on African raised bed (in a range of 28º – 45º C) and finally mechanical drying in silos for 1 day.
The parchment is removed as the final step, and the beans are sorted by size, weight, density, and color, before being bagged for export.
Aquiares, is one of the oldest farms in Costa Rica and is located in the coffee-producing region of Turrialba. They are responsible for some truly spectacular coffees, and as neighbours we are very proud of what they do.
The entire team has worked hard on their land to plant different varieties and have experimented with different processes to deliver exquisite specialty coffee to the market.
