We are very proud to feature the Centroamericano from Aquiares Estate for the 3rd year running. This coffee has consistently been one of our favourite coffees & it has been a great experience seeing how it has evolved over the years.

Aquiares Estate is one of the oldest and most well-known farms in Costa Rica. The farm is owned by the Robelo family & is currently managed by Diego, the son of Don Alfonso. Don Alfonso took over the management of the estate in 1992 & made the welfare of farm workers as well the wider community his priority. Sitting on the fertile slopes of the Turrialba Volcano, the farm has thrived and has continuously produced high-quality coffee as well as supporting the local community of over 1800 people.

This year’s harvest showcases distinct malic acidity like Granny Smith apples, sitting atop its landmark juicy mouthfeel. We taste prominent notes of red dates & dried longans with a sticky finish.

Brew Guide

15g of ground coffee at medium setting.
93 degrees Celsius water.

Pour ground coffee onto a pre-washed paper filter. Tap the sides of the dripper to evenly distribute the bed.

We recommend using a slow and steady stream of water when pouring!

Start the timer, pour up to 80g.
At 0:35, pour up to 150g, in a circular motion, not forgetting to wash down the high and dry grounds present at the sides of the paper filter.
At 1:10, pour up to 200g.
At 1:45, pour up to 250g, right down the middle of the bed.

Wait for the water to drain down, remove the dripper and enjoy your coffee.
