About This Coffee
This coffee comes from the Hacienda Sonora farm, owned by Diego Guardia. The farm and its mill cover approximately 100 hectares. Of those, 45 hectares are devote to shaded coffee lands.
Hacienda Sonora sits at the foot of the Poas Volcano. The farm operates on 100% renewable energy generated by a hydroelectric generator that transform rushing rivers into energy. The energy fuels the wet and dry mills and provides free electricity for everyone living and working on the farm. On the whole, Hacienda Sonora has shared their success generously, paying fair wages to all workers and bolstering the local community economy.
Honey processing help reduce waste water and protect Hacienda Sonora and the surrounding environment. Compared to washed process, honey processing saves more than 3 gallon per pound of coffee. Producing a single 69kg bag of honey processed coffee can save more than 455 gallons of water. In fact, to better protect the environment, all coffees at Hacienda Sonora are either honey or natural processed.
