Why we love this coffee 

This exotic single origin Costa Rican coffee is like no other. Processed using the “black honey” method, its intoxicating aroma transports you to the tropics. The resulting cup has a balanced sweetness evoking orange, peach and floral notes.

The “honey” process used by Hacienda Sonora is one of the most difficult and demanding and expensive coffee processing methods. It consists of leaving part of the cherry remains on the coffee bean and therefore risks over-fermentation. However, the risk is worth taking, as it gives the resulting cup a distinct flavour with sweet fruity undertones and balanced acidity.

Located in Costa Rica’s beautiful Central Valley, Hacienda Sonora sits at the foot of the magnificent Poás volcano. The energy consumed at the farm is 100% renewable and all machines are tuned to perform in the most efficient way possible. By using the “honey” and “natural” processes, Hacienda Sonora saves more than 3 gallons of water per pound of coffee.

Hacienda Sonora consider their employees are a crucial part of their success and believe in wellbeing for all. They provide free accommodation to all workers and their families and cover their cost of water, trash collection and a portion of their electricity.

Fruity undertones

If you are into more fruity undertones, this coffee is just for you. Combining orange, peach and floral notes in a perfect way. I also loved the benefit provided to their employees.

Depth and variety of flavour

I've only recently started getting into craft coffees when I came across this one. It's a really beautiful coffee, with depth and variety of flavour. I take it black with no sugar in to really get the range of taste. Highly recommend.

Super smooth and delicious coffee!

I had this new coffee company recommended by a friend and as I love my coffee I was keen to try it out. It's the smoothest cup of coffee I've ever had and highly recommend it. I also like the story behind the coffee and the sustainable method used. I will definitely be buying again!

Black Honey method is a MUST try!

This coffee was recommended by a friend that knows I am into my coffees. And though I've tried Costa Rican coffee many times before, I thought I would try this one because of the particular processing method. I am glad I did as the coffee has a really interesting taste. Personally I enjoyed the fruity and cherry aftertaste, influenced by the honey method. It is definitely my go to craft coffee at the moment. R G-S.
