Barefoot Coffee Roasters // Costa Rica Sonora Honey

Costa Rica Sonora Honey comes to us from Diego Guardia’s estate in Alajuela, Costa Rica, Hacienda Sonora – an estate which specializes in honey and natural processes. Sonora is reputed for its quality micro-lots, specific varietal and processing separation, and leaving a positive impact on the environment and people that surround their business.

All of the energy consumed by the farm is harvested there and 100% renewable, powering the mill and electricity for local workers.

Sonora classifies their coffee types depending on the process used in the pulping stages. Using the Honey method saves over three gallons of water per pound of coffee, and the Natural process doesn’t use any water.*
