One of our most strongly-held beliefs is that the future of coffee is carbon free and in balance with the planet. With that in mind, we are pleased that this coffee is not only certified carbon neutral roasted, but that this lot from Alfonso Robelo’s farm, the Aquiares Estate, is certified by NAMACAFE as grown completely carbon neutral.
Alfonso arrived in Costa Rica in the 1980s after receiving several threats against his life during the upheaval of the Nicaraguan civil war. Once in Costa Rica, Alfonso began building the Aquiares community on the slopes of the Turrialba volcano, a lush area of forests, rivers, fauna, and bright flora.
The name Aquiares means “land between rivers” in the Huetar indigenous language, and the Aquiares Estate is commonly referred to as “Aquiares Coffee and Community.” It is the largest farm in Costa Rica, home to 1,800 people – and although the farm was founded back in 1890, Alfonso Robelo is the man responsible for its transformation a century later.
