We have a special place on our hearts and our shelf for Hacienda Sonora. We were one of the first companies in Canada to roast and sell Diego's coffee. We also had a chance to meet Diego in Montreal which solidified our relationship. Knowing Diego and how much he cares about his coffee and his staff really make us want to carry Diego's coffee every year. Plus... his coffees are dynamite.
