In Costa Rica’s Central Valley, Hacienda Sonora sits at the foot of the active Poás Volcano. On this 100-hectare farm, 65 hectares are dedicated to shade coffee, 10 hectares to sugarcane and 25 hectares are wild forest reserve.
Alberto Guardia began growing coffee at Hacienda Sonora 45 years ago. His son Diego was born and raised on Sonora and then left to earn a Mechanical Engineering degree at San Diego State University. After graduating, he worked for two years as a construction engineer in California, before deciding to return home to work with his father and improve and maintain the farm’s operation.
Sonora’s coffees grow amongst indigenous trees and other diverse vegetation that provide a great environment for quality and improve the chemistry of soil that’s already naturally rich from volcanic ash. Thanks to the farm’s diverse ecosystem, many different species of birds and animals make their homes on the land.
Hacienda Sonora has well-earned its reputation for producing high-quality micro-lots featuring single varieties and unique processing preparations.
They also strives to have a positive impact on the environment and the people that surround its business. The entirety of the electricity used at Hacienda Sonora, including milling facilities, comes from renewable sources and is produced at the farm.
