About: 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, a commercially viable, high yielding varietal 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.
