    About the coffee

    The Geisha variety originated in Ethiopia, and was later brought to Central America. In Costa Rica, it was originally cultivated only because there was a severe fungal infestation in the local coffee plantations and the farmers were losing a lot. Fortunately, there was a solution: geisha varieties were resistant to this disease.

    The cherries were processed naturally. This method of processing is particularly environmentally friendly because, unlike washed coffee, it uses very little water.

    After harvesting, they are slowly dried in the sun so that all the sweetness of the ripe cherry can be absorbed. After 10-12 days of drying, the cherries are pulped – the dry skin separated from the beans – and stored for a few more days. This resting period is done at a certain temperature so that the beans reach a specific level of moisture.

    The Farm | Hacienda Sonora

    Diego Guadìas has a well-established team at Hacienda Sonora. He has been growing coffee for more than 50 years with the support of his family. The farm is located in the fertile foothills of the famous Poas Volcano in the West Valley, Costa Rica. It is more than a hundred years old, and the Guardìas family have been growing coffee for generations. More than 20 different varieties are cultivated on about 100 hectares, partly in the protected forest.

    The coffee trees ripen excellently under the protective cover of the trees, receiving enough moisture for their optimal development. A Pelton turbine is used as an energy source for the entire farm, driven by a nearby stream. This raging, beautiful body of water supplies the entire operation with 100% green energy.

    The Guardìas love to experiment with coffee varieties and processing methods. During the processing of the beans, great care is taken to protect the environment and especially the rainforest that surrounds them.

    Our partnership with the Guardìas is an asset to our coffee range and we are very happy to have them on board!

    Bloody Good Rockstar

    Coffee is a fruit. This means it is naturally acidic, and contains many sugars. We roast our coffees to bring out this acidity and develop their natural sweetness.

    For us, all rare and special coffees are rockstars. We’re super proud of our diverse and extensive range of rare coffees. Geishas and other special varieties taste their best when we’re roasting them regularly and gaining experience. We are the only roasters in Germany that roast rockstars every single week, with Geisha and other rare varieties in our regular lineup.
