From Lorraine @ The Crafted Coffee Company:
This coffee is great for all brew methods and has flavour notes of sugarcane and cinnamon.
Aquiares, one of Costa Rica’s most historic coffee farms, sits high on the slopes of the Turrialba Volcano.
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. The farm’s agricultural objective is to find the synergies between environmental health and coffee plant health. Such synergies ultimately create long-term stability in the production of high-quality coffee.
Soil health is the is one of the most important parts of any successful agricultural operation. For this reason, Aquiares’ agricultural practices work to build and maintain soil quality. For example, the organic matter provided by shade leaf litter feeds soil microbes. In turn, decomposition provides coffee plants with organic nutrients. In addition, native trees provide shade to slow coffee ripening. A longer ripening process allows the bean to absorb more sugars and makes for a better cup quality.
