Description: The Villa Sarchi varietal is a natural mutation of Bourbon with a single-gene mutation that causes the plant to grow smaller. The variety was discovered in Costa Rica in the 1950s near the town of Sarchí, which is located only a few kilometers away from Hacienda Sonora. This varietal is very well adapted to the region and it’s known for withstanding very strong winds and also for producing well-balanced and complex cups.

Hacienda Sonora is located in the Central Valley of Costa Rica, at the foot of the world renowned, Poas Volcano. The farm’s area is approximately 100 hectares, which is composed of 55 hectares of shaded coffee, 35 hectares of wild forest reserve, and 10 hectares of sugar cane. The average altitude is 1,200 m (or 3,900 ft) above sea level. Our coffee grows in an environment surrounded by exotic trees and other vegetation, providing a great condition for quality, as well as improving the chemistry of the already naturally rich volcanic soil. Thanks to the farm’s diverse ecosystem, many different species of birds and animals seek refuge in our land. All of the energy consumed by the farm is 100% renewable energy harvested on the farm. This energy supplies power to the coffee mill and provides a portion of free electricity for some of the people who live and work at the farm. The green energy is harvested from a natural water stream with a special turbine, known as a Pelton Wheel.
