What’s in store for July?

July's coffee of the Month comes from Aquiares, one of Costa Rica’s most historic coffee farms.

Boasting Milk Chocolate, Yellow Plum, Dates flavour notes, this coffee is a mix of Marsellesa & Obatá varieties.

Aquiares' experiments with the varieties have shown that they have similar cup profiles, leading to them mixing them in processing.

Aquiares coffee is hand picked, ensuring consistent high quality. Microlots, are picked by a special team of skilled harvesters who are paid well above the daily rate for their exceptional skill in picking the ripest cherries at each pass. 

Established in 1890, Aquiares was one of the first estates to produce and export Costa Rican coffee.

In 1971, the farm was purchased by its current owners who implement a modern model of sustainable agriculture.

Today, the Estate is the largest continuous coffee farm in Costa Rica.
