24. December | Sonora Geisha - Costa Rica Filter

Mango, Passionfruit, honey

Sonora L9 from Hacienda Sonora in Costa Rica has a rich, intense body with a syrupy, jammy texture. In the cup, you'll taste sweet dried fruits like sultanas, with a hint of lemon clementine acidity. Just right for a great espresso. Carefully roasted for you in Berlin.

About this coffee

Sonora L9 is a great coffee with a creamy and sweet texture. We roasted it as an espresso to highlight its rich and decadent flavour profile. This espresso coffee is full-bodied, but very clean and clear. Sonora L9 has a sugary sweetness. You'll taste super sweet caramel fudge in the cup, along with bittersweet walnuts and fruity red plum. The aftertaste is sweet with a hint of fresh clementines.

The cherries of the L9 variety are slowly dried in the sun after harvesting. By leaving the pulp on the bean first, it can absorb all the sweetness of the ripe cherry. As a result, the coffee will later develop a rich sweetness. After about 10-12 days of drying, the cherries are pulped - the dry skin separated from the beans - and stored for a few more days. The resting time has to be at a certain temperature so that the beans reach a certain degree of moisture. This type of processing is called 'natural'. It is particularly environmentally friendly because, for example, unlike the washed method, it uses hardly any water.

About the farm

Our relationship with Hacienda Sonora has grown and strengthened over many years as 19grams grow as a business - we know and love their coffees. The farm is already more than a hundred years old, and the Guardìas now have generations of experience growing coffee. More than 20 different varieties are grown on around 100 hectares - partly in the protected forest. The Guardìas love to experiment with coffee varieties and processing methods. That's why we always look forward to their harvest, because every time there is a new, unique coffee to discover.

Diego Guadìas and his family attach great importance to protecting the environment and especially the surrounding rainforest when processing the beans.
