We've been buying coffee from Aquiares Estate, the farm of Diego Robelo, for a number of years. Diego grows a number of different lots on the farm, and those which are particularly good, the very best of the harvest if you like, bear the name 'Don Alfonso', in recognition of one of the founders of the Estate.

This cup is full of berries - strawberry and raspberry! It has a wonderful thick mouthfeel with some strawberry blancmange tones as it cools! There is a sweetness in the cup which reminds us of candyfloss at the fairground!
