Collaborative Coffee Source
This stellar coffee produced by Astrid Medina Pereira on her farm Finca Buena Vista is another excellent offering sourced by Will on his trip to Colombia in August. Buena Vista is located in Planadas, Tolima, in a tiny rural hamlet called San Miguel. This lot is 100% Caturra and is grown at around 1750 masl on 12.5 ha of beautiful land. Astrid is a pretty darn amazing woman—she is a certified technician in coffee production and agricultural production by the National Learning Service in Colombia (SENA). She and her husband (who works at a coffee purchasing cooperative) have 2 kids, and they run the farm in tandem with their sister, who is a single mother of a young boy. It is a family-focused venture—for example, their farm manager is also the husband of Astrid’s niece. It is also exceedingly quality-focused, which paid off big time in 2015 when Buena Vista won 1st place in the ACE Cup of Excellence for North Colombia. We are truly fortunate to be able to offer Astrid’s coffee to y’all. Enjoy!
