It’s something about Christmas Time that makes you wish it was Christmas everyday: unser 19grams Christmas Coffee!We owe this unique espresso from Costa Rica to our friends at Hacienda Sonora. It perfectly combines the flavours of cherries and oranges with a full round body, a sweet caramel note and a creamy chocolatey aftertaste.About the CoffeeThe Villalobos variety is naturally processed. This means that after harvesting, the ripe cherries are spread out on a terrace together with the pulp and dried by the sun before the skin is removed. This allows the cherry to absorb the full flavour and sweetness of the fruit. Villalobos impresses with fruity, smooth and full-bodied characteristics. When enjoying the espresso, a balanced fruity sweetness crystallizes with notes of cherries, caramel, oranges and exotic dried fruits. It has a chocolaty aftertaste reminiscent of "Cherry Garcia," Ben&Jerry's famous chocolate cherry ice cream.About the FarmAlberto Guardìa has been growing coffee for over 50 years. His family farm - with the resonant name Hacienda Sonora, is located on the fertile foothills of the famous Poas Volcano in the West Valley, Costa Rica. It is largely surrounded by pristine virgin forest. The preservation of the rainforest is very important to the Guardìa family. Therefore, they simply let it grow and in it their coffee plants. The coffee trees ripen excellently under the protective roof of the shady trees: they receive enough moisture to develop optimally. As a source of energy for the entire finca, a Pelton turbine is used, which is driven by the water power of a stream. This raging, beautiful body of water supplies the entire finca with '100% Green Energy'. We have known the Guardìas for several years now and are happy to have met such an exceptional family that grows unique coffees every year with understanding and love for nature.
