    Producer and Region

    "Aquiares", meaning "land between rivers" in the Huetar indigenous language, refers to the family-run Aquiares Estate located on the Turrialba volcano's slopes, an area rich in forests, rivers, wildlife, and vibrant flora. Currently managed by Alfonso's son, Diego, the farm has adopted innovative approaches to specialty coffee, exploring its potential. Under Diego's leadership, Aquiares has excelled in agricultural management, embracing new varieties, and pioneering in processing methods, establishing itself as a leader in innovative coffee processing.

    Processing

    This coffee contains the Centroamericano H1 is an F1 hybrid variety generated by crossing the Sarchimor T-5296 and a wild Sudan Rume variety. 

    The Centroamericano variety, chosen for its high mucilage content, is ideal for Anaerobic Natural processing. The process involves floating and washing the cherries without depulping, followed by placing them in a stainless steel tank with a one-way air valve. Natural fermentation begins with the cherries' inherent microorganisms and yeast, creating an anaerobic environment within hours. This fermentation lasts 24 hours. Post-fermentation, the cherries are washed and dried, starting on a ceramic patio for two days before moving to layered beds in a solar dryer.

    Flavour profile

    The combination of this rare variety and professional processing results in a wild and complex flavour profile. It offers a velvety structure with chocolaty creaminess, reminiscent of ripe cantaloupe melon and sweet & sour kaki, followed by a smooth, honey-like aftertaste.
