The Aquiares farm produces a lot of different coffee varieties and we have worked with several of them for many years now. In February 2023 we visited the farm in Costa Rica and got to see the different varieties and ways they process the coffee. This nano lot is a natural processed Espreranza F1 Hybrid, which is a crossing made with Sarchimor T-5296 and a wild Ethiopia ET25 variety. It is reproduced through a tissue culture cloning process called somatic embryogenesis. Thiscultivar is very rare and Aquiares is one of the few farms to produce it on a commercial scale globally. The hybrid represents the best of the farm and cupping worlds, because it is high-yielding and rust-resistant and also has a complex profile.
