RFA Costa Rica Aquiares Estate - Diego Robelo
Centroamericano H1 (Red Honey Process)
Light - Medium Roast: This is Epiphany's first seasonal winter offering and we knew finding a special coffee for the holidays was a must! This Costa Rican coffee was our first choice to kick off Polarity because of its warming flavor notes: toasted pecans, chocolate drizzle and raspberry.
Diego Robelo's father, Alphonso, is something of a coffee farmer trailblazer with the Aquiares Estate. It is the largest farm in Costa Rica, home to 1,800 people and traces its beginnings back to 1890. Diego has since then taken over operations and under his lead, the farm has taken a fresh approach to specialty coffee and exploring the farm’s potential.
Centroamericano H1 is an F1 hybrid variety generated by crossing the Sarchimor T-5296 and a wild Rume Sudan variety. This hybrid represents the best of the farm and cupping worlds because it is high-yielding and rust-resistant and also has a complex, elegant profile.
The Aquiares Coffee and Community farm is an example of innovation and perseverance whose benefits extend beyond the farm and workers to serve as a model for sustainable, equitable production for the broader coffee industry.
