Temple Coffee - Costa Rica Sonora Estate Single Origin Espresso - 12 oz.

product

STORYarticle-shape

Notes of tamarind and sweet maple are soon followed by subtle bursts of juicy nectarine. This unique tangy flavor presents itself as a creamy, acidic caramel that melds together with a crisp brightness of stone fruit. With its silky body and complex finish, this is an exemplary example of a single origin espresso.

STORY

Located near the base of Poas Volcano in the Central Valley of Costa Rica, Hacienda Sonora covers approximately 100 hectares of land. Owned and operated by father-son team Alberto and Diego Guardia, Sonora Estate has remained a fixture of the Costa Rican coffee industry for well over a decade. In fact, we have had the pleasure of working with and sourcing coffee from the Guardia family for over ten years. The Guardia family designates 55 hectares of land for coffee, 10 hectares for sugar cane, and 35 hectares for preserved natural forest. The wild vegetation and diverse ecosystem combine with the nutrient rich volcanic soil to nourish the surrounding coffee trees, and thereby contribute to Sonora Estate's exceptional coffee. All of the coffee at Sonora Estate is processed using Honey and Natural Process methods, which helps to conserve a tremendous amount of water. The Honey Process coffee saves about three gallons of water per pound of coffee, while the Natural Process uses no water at all. The Guardia family's focus on environmental preservation and overall dedication to their craft has led us to work with them all these years. We last offered an espresso from Sonora Estate almost two years ago. We are excited to feature this Honey Process espresso from the Guardia family to round out the last of our 2020 coffee offerings. Enjoy!
