RESERVE ROAST - Black Forest Cake - Costa Rica Natural Sonora - 340g

$ 25.00


Hacienda Sonora aims to progress specialty coffee in Costa Rica by working with more than 20 varietals and several unique processing methods. The farm has been in the Guardia family for more than 100 years but has focused exclusively on specialty coffee since 1999. During the "Piramide" drying process, the coffees are covered early in the afternoon when the temperature is hot, then piled up in a pyramid layered way to modulate the temperature of the cherries throughout the day. This helps to even out the fermentation and avoid development of "boozy" flavours sometimes associated with naturals. These evolving tactics plus impeccable organization and dedication to sustainability makes this one of the most progressive farms in Costa Rica.
