Aquiares Estate

Aquiares coffee is characterized by a distinctly sweet & ‘fruity’ flavor profile, its profound aroma mixes chocolate and cinnamon beautifully, and gives way to a delicate citric acidity. The cup is well balanced, complex and full of character. Flavors last long as the cup finishes nice and clean.
