COCOA. TOFFEE. BRIGHT CITRUS - honey process
Sonora has a well known reputation for commitment to quality micro-lots, specific varietal and processing separation, and fulfilling their goal to leave a positive impact on the environment and people that surround their business. All of the energy consumed by the farm is 100% renewable energy harvested on the farm powering the mill and electricity for local workers. All of Sonora’s coffees are processed at their mill by Natural or Honey process resulting in very sweet, cocoa, and enhanced body complementing the cup. Using the Honey method saves over three gallons of water per pound of coffee.
Colorado is a farm located 10 miles away from Sonora at the base of the Poas and the Barva volcanoes. The farm belongs to some old friends of Sonora, Roberto and Daniel (brothers), who have received help with proper farming and harvesting to improve their quality from Sonora. Their farm has been in their family for three generations of which they've split production between milk, limes, and coffee. They are moving towards 75% of their production being coffee.
The coffee was milled at Hacienda Sonora with the Black Honey process. Roberto and Daniel are very excited about their coffee and are looking forward to continue growing in volume and different varietals. We are excited to see this relationship grow!
