Edier Perdomo’s family farm, Buenavista is located in the Pitalito region of Colombia. Unlike many smallholder coffee farmers in the area, Edier is a certified Q grader & has appointed his own wet mill & drying facility to ensure that his crops are prepared immaculately post-harvest.
The farm grows Bourbon varietal Arabica, alongside the more common Caturra and Colombia, with this lot being comprised of red bourbon as well as the less common pink & striped mutations. In order to future-proof his farm, Edier intercrops his coffee plants with the indigenous Tephrosia tree which is fast growing & enriches the soil with nitrogen as well as protecting the area from landslides.
This is the second year we have bought from Edier & his family & it is an honour to work with his coffee which is beautifully fruit forward & complex in the cup.
