Roundhill are always thrilled to have coffees from Aquiares Estate in Costa Rica as they have known Diego Robelo for several years now, first meeting him when he came to visit the Roundhill Roastery. Roundhill's head Roaster Tim has also travelled with him in Colombia whilst visiting farms in the region
of Antioquia. Diego now manages the Aquiares Estate where he has taken over from his father Alfonso.
Aquiares to us, is a perfect model for large scale coffee farming. Diego’s father evolved the farm into a community, with a 200 strong workforce and provided affordable homes. Diego has carried this on recently making the farm carbon neutral and regularly welcomes researchers to the farm to conduct agricultural and environmental studies.
Centroamericano H1 is an F1 hybrid variety generated by crossing the Sarchimor T-5296 and a wild Rume Sudan variety. It is reproduced through a tissue culture cloning process called somatic embryogenesis. This cultivar has been distributed among coffee producers in Central America over the last decade and the first productive harvests are now available.
