 Colombia - Finca Buenavista

The farm Buenavista, owned by Astrid Medina and her husband Raul Antonio Duran Gutierrez, is found in the hamlet of Gaiatania, in the very south of Tolima. With its high altitudes and generous climate, it has a long history of coffee growing.This is a very remote area, and was for a long time not exactly the safest place you could go in Colombia. Unfortunately, this region suffered a lot during the conflict with the guerrilla, so the infrastructure is not so good, and international coffee buyers didn’t dare to come here for several years. But that’s in the past, and we are now experiencing big improvements in infrastructure and Southern Tolima is getting a lot of attention.

Astrid Medina won the Cup of Excellence in Colombia in 2015, and this also helped to give the growers in Tolima the reputation and attention they deserve. Astrid and Raul are very switched on and open-minded, always wanting to improve their product. They are keeping the farm in perfect condition, and constantly experimenting and implementing new ideas to improve the processing.

This is the first time we are buying coffee from Astrid and Raul, but Anne met them 5 years ago during her second visit to Colombia and since then they have become friends and they talk on a weekly basis and meet every time Anne goes to Colombia. We are super excited to showcase their incredible coffee.
