The Aquiares Estate was founded in 1890, and now has a thriving local community of 1,800 people across 924 hectares. Aquiares became the first farm in Costa Rica to fulfil the requirements of the Rainforest Alliance Climate Module. Their emissions are tracked to certify that they do not meaningfully contribute towards climate change.
Additionally, Aquiares is the basis of an ongoing study between the CIRAD Institute of France and the CATIE University of Costa Rica – the “Carbon-Flux” project measures greenhouse gas exchange between the farm plot and the atmosphere. Eventually, this research can be used by any coffee farmer to estimate the carbon sequestration potential of their farm.
