We’ve been working with Luis Pedro Zelaya Zamora for almost as long as we’ve been buying coffee and he feels very much like family. Buena Vista is, in many ways, the pinnacle of what Luis Pedro and his family have been doing in Antigua for many decades now: running a coffee growing and processing operation with vast knowledge and an eye for the details. The Gravilea trees are pruned meticulously, the coffees are dried on raised beds, fresh toastadas are served just outside the cupping lab.We tirelessly cup and put our lots together each year and each year we are rewarded in myriad ways. This year, the cup is elegant and structured with nectarine, vanilla, tangerine and caramel. Always, Luis Pedro’s coffees are clean, sweet and structured and this year is a standout--once again, we bow in gratitude to the Zelayas for their careful shepherding and great care.
