Costa Rica Aquiares Entre Rios Don Alfonso

Costa Rica


Cane Sugar, Stone Fruit, Cherry Tomato

$175.00

This special ‘Don Alfonso’ coffee represents the very best of the harvest from the famous Aquiares Estate in Turrialba, Costa Rica.

Aquiares, one of Costa Rica’s largest and most historic coffee farms, sits high on the fertile slopes of Turrialba Volcano.

The farm has developed an enduring model for growing high-quality Arabica coffee, protecting a stunning natural setting, and supporting a

thriving local community of 1,800 people.

This lot is a mix of Marsellesa & Obatá varieties. Marellesa is a variety obtained from the hybridization of Sarchimor and Caturra. It is sought after

for its superior cup quality and its resistance to leaf rust. Obatá is a Sarchimor: a cross between Timor Hybrid 832/2 and Villa Sarchi CIFC

971/10. Experiments made by Aquiares have shown the two varieties to have similar cup profiles, which is why they have been mixed in

processing.

All Aquiares coffee is picked by hand to ensure consistent high quality. Microlots, such as this one, 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
