About this Coffee
Sonora Typica is another fantastic coffee from Costa Rica from Hacienda Sonora. The Typica variety is one of the oldest coffees in the history books and also one of the most culturally important Arabica varieties, having been passed down throughout the world.
The high altitude at which this variety is grown has a huge impact on its flavor complexity. Although the plants do not produce large yields, the beans are all the more flavorful for it. Unfortunately, this variety is very susceptible to leaf rust and other coffee diseases, which means that farmers need to pay a lot of attention to the plants and give them a little extra TLC.
Sonora Typica was processed using the honey method. The beans are first hand picked, only the mature beans are selected by floater separation and separated from their pulp in a penagos depulper. However, the parchment skin is retained, which is important in this method. The sticky beans are then dried for 9 days on the terraces and another 3 days in storage at a constant humidity of 14%. This is followed by a short mechanical drying, which is more uniform and does not exceed 35°C. Once the coffee reaches a moisture content of 10.5%, it is dried with the parchment skin for another two months. Just before shipment, the parchment skin, also called silver skin, is mechanically removed. It is then prepared for export, weighed and packaged.
Sonora Typica has rich chocolatey nuances, as well as notes of macadamia nuts and fruity apricot. Wonderful for your cappuccino or flat white - or divine as an espresso.
About the Farm
Our relationship with Hacienda Sonora has grown and strengthened over many years, paralleling the growth of 19grams as a company - 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 about 100 hectares - some in protected forest. The Guardìas love to experiment with coffee varieties and processing methods. Therefore, we always look forward to their harvest, because every time there is a new, unique coffee to discover.

Bloody Good Coffee
– SINCE 2002
Bloody Good Filter
Coffee is a fruit which is naturally acidic and contains many sugars. We roast our filter coffees to bring out this acidity and develop the natural sweetness.
In developing a profile for a filter roast, our roasting team takes a light-handed approach, roasting much more gently than in an espresso roast. Here, the aim is to respect and highlight the natural flavours of the coffee itself, and to let its terroir shine through.
