Aquiares Estate Entre Rios

Our seasonal coffees each come with their own story, which is part of what makes them so special. Here we take a closer look at Aquiares Estate in Costa Rica.

The Farm

The Facts!

Varietals: Marsellesa & Obatá 
Processing: Natural
Altitude: 1,100 to 1,400m

Harvesting & Processing

Social and Environmental Responsibility

Aquiares is strongly committed to, and has become an international leader in, environmental sustainability. The farm has long seen the connection between agricultural, environmental, and social health. By planting more than 50,000 shade trees, creating natural buffers around streams and water springs, preserving the river valleys as forest, planting along the contour, implementing integrated pest management systems and many other steps, Aquiares has demonstrated how to make ecological ideals a reality. 

Its stringent environmental stewardship enabled the farm to achieve Rainforest Alliance Certification in 2003. In 2012, Aquiares became the first farm in Costa Rica to fulfil the requirements of the Rainforest Alliance Climate Module. This requires adhering to careful standards of greenhouse gas emissions and energy use, which are carefully tracked through each harvest season. This certification demonstrates that the farm’s low emissions do not meaningfully contribute to climate change. Not only that, but the farm is 100% carbon neutral, and actually carbon negative. The trees that have been planted and the reduced usage of chemical fertilizers has helped sequester carbon into the soil, more carbon than the farm actually produces.
