Rob Says: The come back of Hacienda Sonora!
Alberto and Diego Guardia (Father and Son) are amazing people, who have created one of the best micro-mills in Costa Rica. I remember cupping their first natural processed stuff in 2015 and most of the co-cuppers in the room were turned off by the omni present fermented and funky flavors. We loved it immediately and bought another great Villa Sarchi lot in 2017. Now it’s back; with this (experimental) ultra rare Sarchimor Variety lot, called San Luis.
SARCHIMOR is a ‘family’ of varieties that are hybrids of a coffee leaf rust (CLR) resistant hybrid from Timor-Leste and Villa Sarchi. It’s the first Sarchimor coffee at Caffenation ever!
