The Aguilera brothers are a group of 12 siblings who have been focusing on producing speciality micro-lots for over 15 years and are well know around the world. As a group they own several farms around the West Valley area of Costa Rica and their micro mill is located just a few minutes drive from La Isla micro mill, another fantastic coffee producer!
The farms are planted with a range of different varietals including Villa Sarchi, Catuai, SL28 and Geisha. Their focus is on producing mainly honey and natural microlots with varietal separation. We were fortunate to have been able to visit them in 2020 and you can see some of the incredible ripe cherry arriving to be dried on their own football field!

When we cupped this sample the vibrant acidity and similarity to Kenya coffee is immediately obvious making this a unique and very different coffee.
After harvest the coffee is pulped using a Penagos Eco-pulper to remove the outer layer of fruit:
