Aromas of spiced plums are followed by notes of milk chocolate, stone fruit and cherries. A thick body pairs with a mellow citrus acidity and a creamy, hazelnut finish. Diego Guardia’s family owns Hacienda Sonora which specializes in honey and natural processes. Sonora is reputed for its quality micro-lots, specific varietal and processing separation, and leaving a p ositive impact on the environment and people that surround their business. All of the energy consumed by the farm is 100% renewable energy harvested on the farm 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.
