Nariño is located in the far south-west of Colombia bordering Ecuador, and is in general one of the most challenging, but also most interesting places to work. There is an extreme high elevation, up to 2 080 meters, very steep hillsides, and mainly super tiny farms in very remote areas. Diana Milena Guerrero de la Cruz, and her husband Jiero Canar Córdoba, work alongside each other on their farm El Pedredal. They came into the farm through Jieros father who divided his own farm into a few lots and gave one of them to Jiero. Diana bought her lot from Jieros sister, who didn't work the land she had been given. At El Pedregal, coffees still carried by horse from the plantation to the farm itself.

Today the Aquiares farm is the largest coffee farm in Costa Rica with around 1 800 people working and living there. Alfonso Robelo, has been involved in the farm since 1980, and nowadays Alfonso's son, Diego, manages the farm. Under Diegos lead Aquiares has taken a fresh approach to specialty coffee. For example, they experiment a lot with hybrid varieties, such as this one, F1 centroamericano. This isn't the first time we buy coffee from Diego Robelos farm, but it's the first time in da Matteos history that we buy an anaerobic fermented lot. The Centroamericano variety was especially selected for anaerobic natural processing, because of its high mucilage content. First, the cherries are floated and washed with fresh water, but not depulped. Then the coffee cherries are placed in tanks to ferment, with its natural microorganisms and yeast present on the cherries.
