My bike is 8 speed and i am looking to increase the cassette size on the rear.

Currently have 12/25 and shifters are STI 2300 shimano. The 2300 RD only goes upto 26T so looking to increase to a 12/27 ish.

Will a Sora Rear derailleur work with my 2300 shifters?

    Yes, a Sora will work fine, but your current mech will most likely work just fine as well. The limits are theoretical, minimum guaranteed limits, in real world many people have exceeded the number by up to three teeth.
