The wonderful micro lot is grown on the slopes of the Turrialba Volcano, Hacienda Aquiares is one of the largest and oldest estates in Costa Rica. Aquiares means 'land between rivers' in the Huetar indigenous language; in this case, the Aquiares and Turrialba rivers.
Our honey-processed micro lot coffee comes from selected high altitude lots in the farm, which are carefully hand-picked and brought in small batches of separate varieties to be de-pulped at the Beneficio. By leaving the mucilage attached, and allowing coffee to a slow (2-3 weeks) sun drying process, we have come to obtain a cup with a complexity that transcends borders, with unique caramel and fruity characteristics.
Tasting Notes: chocolate, plum, cherry, rich body and prolonged aftertaste
