You’ll find Astrid and her farm Buena Vista in Gaitania, the very south of Tolima. The high altitude and generous climate makes for perfect conditions for growing coffee. Despite this, the region was long overlooked due to its remote location, lack of infrastructure and the area’s suffering under the conflict with the guerilla. Luckily, this is all in the past and we are seeing big improvements as Tolima is finally getting the attention it deserves. Astrid Medina won the Cup of Excellence in Colombia in 2015 which helped give the growers and the area it’s proper reputation. Besides being a stellar coffee producer, Astrid is also a power-house of strength and inspiration and we are happy and proud to be able to work with her and her coffee.
