    About the coffee

    The Villalobos variety is of course processed. This means that after the harvest, the ripe cherries are spread out on a terrace with their flesh and dried in the sun before the skin is removed. This allows the cherry to absorb the full flavor and sweetness of the fruit. Villalobos convinces with fruity, soft and full-bodied properties. When enjoying the espresso, a balanced fruity sweetness crystallizes with notes of cherries, caramel, oranges and exotic dried fruits that make you forget the cold weather and warm your body from the inside out. The chocolaty aftertaste ensures that you get the perfect Christmas feeling on the finish.

    About the farm

    Alberto 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.

    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.
