About the Processing

This Marsellesa variety is picked as whole cherries and laid out on patios to dry. The cherries get covered in the early afternoon when the temperature is hot, then piled up in pyramid-like layers to modulate the temperature throughout the day. Alberto & Diego utilize this drying method to avoid "boozy" flavours, creating a balanced and clean profile.

More from Hacienda Sonora

"Hacienda Sonora is located in the Central Valley of Costa Rica, at the foot of the world renowned, Poas Volcano. The farm’s area is approximately 100 hectares, which is composed of 55 hectares of shaded coffee, 35 hectares of wild forest reserve, and 10 hectares of sugar cane. The average altitude is 1,200 m (or 3,900 ft) above sea level. Our 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 our land." -
