THE FARM:

The largest coffee farm in Costa Rica, Aquiares devotes 80% of its land to growing high quality coffee and the remaining 20% to conservation. Coffee plots are interlaced with over a dozen natural springs and almost 20 kilometers in streams, all protected with buffer zones in line with our Rainforest Alliance certification. These streams form a network of natural corridors through the farm that connect the large protected forests in the two river valleys, providing a healthy environment for the local animals, birds, and plants.

THE COFFEE:
Aquiares coffee is characterized by a distinctly sweet & 'fruity' flavor profile. Its profound aroma mixes chocolate and cinnamon beautifully, and gives way to a delicate citric acidity. The cup is well balanced, complex and full of character. Flavors last long as the cup finishes nice and clean.

The farm manages the the entire production chain of its coffee. This starts with seedling production and continues through cultivation, bean picking and milling. Our success in managing the coffee production chain has been proven by our consistently high quality product. Quality and traceability are always guaranteed.

SUSTAINABILITY:
Aquiares has become an international leader in environmental sustainability. As the largest Rainforest Certified Coffee Farm in Costa Rica, it is a pioneer in sustainable practices applied on a large agricultural scale. In the past decades the farm has planted more than 50,000 shade trees, creating natural buffers around streams and water springs. It has worked to preserve the river valleys as forest, planting along the contours of the hills.

The resurgent shade trees also transform what would be a monoculture environment into a holistic natural landscape. This allows the farms rich biome to continue regular life patterns with minimal human interruption.
