Diego Guardia is the new generation of coffee producer and exporter. When he’s not on the farm, you will see Diego ripping his finest cut-backs in the surf and strumming his guitar. Costa Rica is as well known for its fine speciality coffees, as it is for amazing warm water breaks. Diego is a university graduate in mechanical engineering. Hacienda Sonora is owned and operated by Alberto (father) and Diego Guardia in the region of Central Valley (1100 to 1600 masl). The Red Catuai is a commercially viable, high yielding varietal that is a mutation between Mundo Nova and Caturra. We have secured this specific lot for the last five years from Alberto and Diego as it makes a vibrant and juicy filter and a sugary and sweet balanced espresso.
