Aquiares is the largest farm in Costa Rica, with about 1 800 people working and living there. The farm was originally owned by Alfonso Robelo, but now his son Diego has taking over the management. This isn’t the first time we buy coffee from Diego Robelos farm, and we enjoyed this fermented lot so much that we had to buy it again. This variaty (F1 Esperanza) 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.
