WHY WE LIKE IT
If freshness were represented by a coffee, this would be it. Buena Vista is a delicate coffee, with notes reminiscent of lemon and black tea. It has a round acidity accompanied by sweetness, like prunes, with a super creamy body and texture. It is ideal to drink when you feel like something smooth and fresh, both in espresso and filter.

STORY BEHIND THIS COFFEE
Fifteen years ago, Jesús was planting various plants on his farm and was not satisfied with the results. He decided to focus on coffee, and success has prompted him to continue on this path and plant more coffee on the farm. Jesus and his family work together on the farm, and his children help process the coffee in their artisanal wet mill.
"As a family that depends on coffee for a living, we work hard to get the best quality we can," Jesús explains.
VARIETY AND PROCESS
The process of this coffee is washed, which consists of completely removing the mucilage from the bean, and leaving it to ferment in water tanks for 12-18 hours before leaving it to dry in the sun.
