Hacienda Sonora Estate has been in Alberto Guardia’s family for more than a Century. Alberto took over management of the farm in the '70's and began planting the majority of the land with coffee. With historical low coffee prices in 1999, Alberto invested to build a mill on site in order to maximize his quality. In doing so, he became a pioneer of unusual alternative processing techniques.
