    Villa Sarchi Red & Yellow Honey Honey

    This Villa Sarchi  Honey was grown at Sonora Colorado and processed at Palmichal, in the yellow & red honey processing style. The difference between these two honey process methods is the amount of light and drying time the beans are exposed for.

    Gold honey will be dried during warm, sunny times with little humidity. This helps it to dry quickly. Red honey, however, is processed under more shade to slow down the drying time. This will increase the amount of humidity the beans are exposed to.

    Diego & Alberto are very excited about their coffee business and are looking forward to growing in volume and varietals.

    In Costa Rica's Central Valley, Hacienda Sonora sits at the foot of the celebrated Poás Volcano. On this 100-hectare farm, 65 hectares are dedicated to shade coffee, 10 hectares to sugarcane and 25 hectares are wild forest reserve.

    Alberto Guardia began growing coffee at Hacienda Sonora 45 years ago. His son Diego was born and raised on Sonora and then left to earn a Mechanical Engineering degree at San Diego State University. After graduating, he worked for two years as a construction engineer in California, before deciding to return home to work with his father and improve and maintain the farm's operation.

    Coffee Exporter, Ceca

    In 2010, Diego began to also work for Cecacompany in Costa Rica, to focus on its micro-lot program. The same year, the Palmichal Micro-Mill opened and began processing from 5- to 100-bag lots from 30 specific farms.

    Ceca traditionally sources SHB, Fancy SHB and Tarrazu green coffee from more than 2,000 coffee growers in the Tarrazu region. It also has a nursery program that experimented with planting 350,000 plants in 2016, using high-quality, rust-resistant varieties. 

     

    This coffee works fantastically well in all brewing equipment, including espresso / cappuccino machines, cafetiere pots, paper / metal filter brewers, and Turkish brewers.
