Collaborative Coffee Source
This stellar coffee was produced by the one and only Astrid Medina Pereira on her farm Finca Buena Vista. Buena Vista is located in Planadas, Tolima, in a tiny rural town called San Miguel. This lot is 40% Castillo, 40% Colombia, and 20% 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. It is a family-focused venture and 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 absolutely love working with someone so stoked, driven, and passionate about their work and we're so proud to be able to offer Astrid’s coffee to y’all year after year.
