Set among Caturra trees in south-west Colombia, the Buena Vista family farm has been successfully running for some 30 years.
Carlos is a welcoming and hard-working host. You can see that he lives by what he does, and so does the whole family. The plantation is some 5,938 ft (1,800m) above sea level. Like most Colombian plantations, Buena Vista is able to produce coffee all year long. Thanks to the favorable climate conditions, the family is able to sell almost 20 tons of coffee annually.
Once picked, the coffee is hung on ‘secaderos’ for about 16 hours. There, the coffee’s able to withstand the elements, including the daily showers. The coffee is also certain to get enough air circulation using this method.
The coffee will be familiar to those of you that have had a Huila region coffee before. The aroma is full of sugarcane, tropical fruit, and freshly plucked plums. The actual taste will remind you of milk chocolate, toffee, nuts, and plums. Full bodied, very complex, but also very sweet. If you enjoy having your cup on the sweet side and enjoy discovering various intricacies along the way, then look no further.
We consider being able to offer you a coffee of this quality a huge privilege. Getting one’s hands on coffee from Buena Vista, directly from the farmer themself especially, is an achievement that we hope you’ll share with us.
