Finca Buenavista is a 4 hectare plot farmed by Edier Perdomo. Edier lives on the farm with his wife Daney Mahecha and their daughter Taliana. Buenavista is next door to Edier's family farm which is more traditional in its approach, focussing on yield and the rust resistant Colombia and Sarchimor varieties. In contrast, Edier's approach is dictated by quality, and this is reflected in his drive to improve his skills, to experiment, and to plant varieties based on cup quality as opposed to yield.
In the words of Edier himself, "I am a professional technician in the production of speciality coffee, and a certified Q-Grader with more than 6 years of experience. In order to guarantee quality, we carry out specific processes at the farm, such as collecting only the cherries that are mature, controlled fermentation, and prolonged drying of the coffee".
Edier currently grows caturra, bourbon and geisha varieties on the farm. Alongside Yamith Cifuentes, Edier's geisha stood out at a cupping of coffees from the Huila region hosted High Altitude coffee importers. The geisha variety is believed to be Ethiopian in origin, and the flavour profile of this beautiful coffee bears all the hallmarks of the best Ethiopian coffee. In the cup it is delicate but very complex, with notes of jasmine tea, lemon and cacao nibs.
