Description:
Aquiares means “land between rivers” in the Huetar language and is Costa Rica’s largest farm, home to 1,800 people. Founded in 1890, it was transformed by Alfonso Robelo in the 1980s, who fled Nicaragua’s civil war. Alfonso created a sustainable community by enabling workers to own their homes, fostering pride and stability. Now managed by his son Diego, the farm excels in specialty coffee production, carbon neutrality, and agroforestry research.

Aquiares is a model of sustainable agriculture, attracting global researchers and ensuring the wellbeing of local wildlife through protected biological corridors. Its innovative practices extend benefits beyond the farm, representing a commitment to sustainability and equity.

The Centroamericano H1 hybrid, a high-yield, rust-resistant variety, thrives in Turrialba’s climate. This coffee is mechanically washed and dried on raised beds in a solar dryer for 18 to 24 days, showcasing the farm’s excellence in coffee production.
