Every Coffee Has A Story

As the largest Rainforest Alliance Certified coffee farm in Costa Rica, Aquiares devotes 80 percent of its land to growing high quality coffee and the remaining 20 percent to conservation. Coffee plots are interlaced with over a dozen natural springs and almost 20 kilometers in sttreams, all protected with buffer zones in line with the property's RA certification. These streams form a network of natural corridots 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 farm and the community at Aquiares are mutually connected. The farm provides services, land, security, and honest jobs. In return, the coffee farm has benefited from a well-educated community and relies on highly skilled professionals from it's community to thrive. Such a level of interdependence has helped contribute to the sense of pride that Aquiareñoes take in both their community and the coffee.

Words of Wisdom

Quick Answers!

Are these coffees flavored?

Nope! Coffee is super complex and can be affected by alot of different things. Tasting notes refer to the subtle reference to flavors that deviate from your standard idea of coffee. For example, you may taste a slight sweetness- a bit like strawberry.

I put milk in my coffee. Any suggestions?

Stop that! Just kidding.

If you enjoy your coffee with a bit of milk or creamer, we suggest choosing a darker roast or a coffee with a heavier body. Typically, lighter roasts will not be able to handle milk. In other words, you will lose the coffee-ness if you put milk in a light roast.

What happened to that one coffee that I liked?!

Coffee is a plant! That means that crops can change from season to season. We regularly sample and roast new coffees to make sure we have the highest quality bean for your cup! To us, we would rather retire "McJoeJoe's Roast" if the beans have reached the end of their life. If you are missing your old favorite roast, reach out to us and we can help you find your new favorite!
