Roasting: Start with a Full City (Medium), or just up to the second crack. Like most Colombia coffee, Finca Buena Vista will accept a wide variation in roast profiles and still deliver a great cup. If you can't hear the cracks, then roast until the beans are smooth and medium dark brown with just the first hints of oil. You should get a nice even roast.
Reminder: This coffee is raw. You have to roast it before brewing.
Our Review: Finca Buena Vista is owned by Eneil Bayona and is located in the village of Minca. Eneil loves to produce coffee; it’s been in his family as long as he can remember. It hasn’t always been easy though, as he’d gotten discouraged by low coffee prices. Since then, he’s worked hard to make sure his coffee is certified as Organic, which has gotten him a much higher premium that he uses to continually re-invest in production and improvement. Eneil is heavily involved in the region and works with neighboring producers to pilot new planting programs and test new varietals.
Colombian coffee is always a favorite with many different kinds of coffee drinkers no matter what they're preferences. It's the jack of all trades, master of none. It's full bodied, balanced, drinkable but never boring! This selection is exceptional with a crisp, sweet front end and notes of brown sugar, orange and a almond finish. This gives it character without having too many competing flavors. Trust us, you'll like this one and so will your friends and family, whether they drown their cup in cream and sugar or prefer to take it black!
