Alberto Guardia began growing coffee at Hacienda Sonora in the 1970s. The 100-hectare farm sits at the foot of the active Poás Volcano in Costa Rica’s Central Valley. Sonora has a well-earned reputation for producing quality microlots featuring specific varietal and processing separation. This honey-processed lot is made up entirely of the Obata variety, which is a cross between Villa Sarchi and Timor coffee varieties. Hacienda Sonora has a heavy focus on environmental and social impact—the farm uses 100 percent renewable energy that’s harvested on the farm and has also eliminated excess water usage by utilizing natural and honey processing methods. Sonora also provides workers and their families free accommodations, including most household utilities, in the farm’s houses.
Farmer Impact Fund further invests in coffee communities through direct balloon payments to producers who have autonomy to use the money on community and farm-level projects. By adding a small surcharge to your green coffee purchase, these funds are directly distributed to farmers, providing a direct connection between you and to the lives of producers for the first time in the coffee industry.
Through the Farmer Impact Fund, Alberto has been able to invest in major upgrades and improvements to his mill to increase safety and efficiency, a project he would have been unable to complete without the use of these funds.
Is your coffee FDA approved?
Yes, all of our coffee is FDA approved.
Can you really grind my coffee the way I want it?
Yes, and now you can select how you want the coffee grounds on every coffee product page (for ground coffee). We offer everything from Coarse to Fine, including specialty grinds for Espresso, French Press, Turkish Coffee, Moka Pot, Vacuum Pot, Percolator, Coffee Urns, Auto-Drip and more.
Why is your coffee so inexpensive if it's true gourmet coffee?
We offer our premium coffees as ground and whole bean, roasted or green, from select farms for a lower price when compared with other premium gourmet coffee offerings. We offer these rare coffees at a great discount. After we import we roast the beans ready for you to enjoy. Although we could charge a lot more for our coffee, we choose to take another approach. We sell on volume. By selling more coffee for less profit, rather than less coffee at higher profit, we actually come out even either way. With this in mind, we choose to offer our coffee for less, which means we move more inventory so the coffee is always fresh and newly picked from the farms, plus you benefit because you save money on premium gourmet specialty coffees.
What farm does your famous brand coffee come from?
We source the beans from many tiny family farms. Some at high elevation with shade grown coffee fields that flourish on the edge of the mountains and some at medium elevation with full sun. The workers hand pick every coffee cherry, and hand wash them too. Matter of fact, they do it all by hand right down to the drying of the beans in natural sunlight with beans spread over wooden planks. The same way it was done hundreds of years ago, an old world method. No automated picking machines or careless processing. Hand selected beans, among the best anywhere in the world. We are sure you can not get coffee of this quality for the price we offer it anywhere else. We focus on environmentally friendly processing that is good for the surrounding habitat.
