Aquiares mainly grows the Caturra variety of coffee. That said, the challenges posed by climate change and pests require constant experimentation with new varieties. To do this, the farm has developed a Varietal Garden were more than 30 promising varieties are being tested for cup quality, pest resistance and productivity.

While large by Costa Rican standards, the farm still takes care to give individual attention to each of its trees. Aquiares takes the time to prune each plant independently, instead of pruning by row or lot. Aquiares’ brand is defined by such a sustainable agricultural approach that both ensures quality and promotes environmental responsibility.
