Aquiares estate is one of Costa Rica’s largest and most historic coffee farms. Founded in 1890 it was one of the first farms to export Costa Rican coffee. In 1971 is was purchased by the Robelo family.
Don Alfonso represents the highest quality micro lots the farm produces to date, bearing its name from Don Alfonso Robelo, the patriarch of the family.
