We are extremely lucky to get our hands on a small amount of this remarkable and distinctive coffee. Hacienda Sonora produces some of the most exquisite coffees to come out of Costa Rica. The amount of care and attention going into producing these micro-lot coffees is expensive, but the results are worth it. Experience for yourself what makes Sonora coffee so renown.

Just in time for the holidays – makes a perfect dessert coffee. Rarely will you find a coffee with this level of sweetness.

The Farm

Hacienda Sonora is located in the Central Valley of Costa Rica, at the foot of the world renowned, Poas Volcano. The farm’s area is approximately 100 hectares, which is composed of 55 hectares of shaded coffee, 35 hectares of wild forest reserve, and 10 hectares of sugar cane. The average altitude is 1,200 m (or 3,900 ft) above sea level. The coffee grows in an environment surrounded by exotic trees and other vegetation, providing a great condition for quality, as well as improving the chemistry of the already naturally rich volcanic soil. Thanks to the farm’s diverse ecosystem, many different species of birds and animals seek refuge in the estate.

The process

 

The micro coffee mill is built in the heart of Hacienda Sonora next to a traditional 150-year-old sugar cane mill that is preserved intact. All of the machines in the mill are tuned to perform in the best most efficient manner, using the energy harvested within the farm.

Sonora processes all of the coffee using the honey and natural methods. Both of these methods require a lot more work and care than the traditional fully washed. However, it all makes sense when you taste the results in the cup. By playing and trying different techniques with these two methods we have been able to obtain distinct sweetness, with all types of cacao and enhanced fruit notes that complement the body of our cup profiles in our different varietals.

Another important advantage is that we save great amounts of water by using the honey and the natural processes. Using the honey method saves more than 3 gallons of water per pound of coffee. Natural processed coffee doesn’t need any water.

Tasting notes: creamy body, intensely sweet with flavors of cola, plum and nectarine.
