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.
Fully ripe cherry is brought to the mill where floaters are separated. The heavy fruit is then placed inside a stainless steel barrel, mosto is incorporated and then the tank is sealed. We check temperature and pH twice a day, and once it reaches pH of 4.3 (1-2 days), it is opened and the cherry is taken to sun-dry for 10 days.
