Hacienda Sonora is a family farm located in the Central Valley of Costa Rica at the foot of the Poas Volcano in Carrillo, Alajuela. Diego is the fifth generation of coffee producers in his family. The farm’s area is approximately 100 hectares, with 55 hectares of shaded coffee, 35 hectares of wild forest reserve, and 10 hectares of sugarcane. Coffee on Hacienda Sonora grows in an environment surrounded by diverse trees and other vegetation, providing excellent conditions for quality production and improving the chemistry of the already naturally rich volcanic soil. Thanks to the farm’s diverse ecosystem, many different species of birds and animals call the farm their natural habitat.

The Obata varietal is a new hybrid, crossed between two other natural hybrids, Timor Hybrid and Villa Sarchi. Pedigree selection made by the Instituto Agronomico of Sao Paulo State in Campinas, Brazil. It was released in Brazil in 2000, and brought to Costa Rica for commercial release in 2014 by the Costa Rican Coffee Institute (ICAFE). Hybrids are highly researched by all Agricultural Institutes in the hope of developing leaf rust (a disease that attacks coffee plants and has destroyed many farms across the globe) resistant plants that provide exceptional coffees at lower altitudes conditions such as the ones generated by global warming.
