Hacienda Sonora has been in Alberto’s family for more than a century. In the 1970s when Alberto took over the farm he began planting the majority of the land with coffee and shortly after it became the main source of income. In 1999 with historical low coffee prices, Alberto invested in a Mill, in order to be able to maximize his quality, and in doing so he became a pioneer in very alternative processing techniques at the time such as honey and naturals, showcasing a living proof of how different varietals could create different level of complexity in the cup. Nowadays, Sonora has more than 20 different varietals of plants in 80 hectares of coffee (+ 20 hectares of forest reserve) and is known to be a welcoming place for coffee lovers.

Hacienda Sonora’s coffee grows in an environment surrounded by exotic trees and other vegetation, providing a great condition for quality, as well as improving the chemistry of the already naturally rich volcanic soil. Thanks to the farm’s diverse ecosystem, many different species of birds and animals seek refuge in their land. Hacienda Sonora specialises in Micro-Lot coffees.

Often in natural coffees, you see total imbalance of flavour showing little outside of accentuated ferment and fruit. This Micro Lot shows balance throughout whilst maintaining the extreme clarity of flavours that you would expect to see in a natural coffee.
