Astrid Medina inherited the family business in 2006 after her father was tragically killed during an internal conflict in Colombia. Alongside her sister, Astrid now runs the family’s ethically managed and sustainable coffee farm.
Astrid’s farm, Finca Buena Vista, is in the municipality of Planadas in the southern region of Tolima, near the city of Gaitania. Finca Buena Vista is bordered by the State of Huila and the beautiful Nevado de Huila National Parque which creates exceptional conditions for the best washed arabica coffees.
Astrid Medina won the renowned “Cup of Excellence” in 2015 which not only earned her the reputation as one of the most respected and innovative coffee farmers in the industry but also brought a lot of attention from the world of specialty coffee to the Planadas region of Colombia. Astrid puts emphasis on quality in every phase including cultivation, harvesting, processing, and drying. We believe this focus on quality can be tasted in every cup of her coffees, especially this year’s Lot 2.
