    About the coffee

    About this coffee

    The Sonora L9 is a great coffee with a creamy and sweet texture. We roasted it as an espresso to highlight its rich and decadent flavor profile. This espresso coffee is full-bodied, but very clean and crisp. 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 harvest. 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 period must take place at a certain temperature so that the beans reach a certain degree of moisture. This type of processing is called 'Natural'. It is especially environmentally friendly because, for example, unlike the washed method, it uses very little water.

    About the farm

    The Hacienda Sonora is located in the Central Valley in Costa Rica.

    Alberto Guardìa has been growing coffee for over 50 years. His family farm - with the melodious name Hacienda Sonora, is located on the fertile foothills of the famous Poas volcano in Costa Rica's West Valley. It is largely surrounded by untouched virgin forest. The preservation of the rainforest is very important to the Guardìa family. That is why 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. A Pelton turbine powered by the water power of a stream is used as the energy source for the entire finca. This raging, beautiful body of water supplies the entire finca with '100 % green energy'. We have known the Guardìas for a few years now and are happy to have met such an exceptional family that grows unique coffees every year with understanding and love for nature.
