Buena Vista was bought in 1995. Since then, it has been managed by Luis Pedro Zelaya. The coffee is brought to Bella Vista for the wet and dry mill. The farm agricultural management includes tissue management (pruning and suckering),
plant nutrition (soil and foliar analysis), pest and disease control and strict shade management.
After reaping the cherries, the coffee is taken to Bella Vista for wet and dry mill.
Coffee is separated by lots (day of picking, variety, altitude). Then it goes through
the whole process of depulping, fermentation, washing and the drying process.
The coffee could be sun-dried in patios or greenhouses. The greenhouse allows to
dry the coffee in a controlled environment and to dry the coffee gradually which
results in a better cup. The airflow permits a more uniform drying process and
the coffee beans can easily be hand sorted.
After some resting time in our warehouses, the coffee goes through the dry mill process. The parchment from the coffee is removed and then the green beans are separated by size and weight. Finally the coffee is picked by an electronic
classifier machine, which removes all the damaged beans by using a color scale.
Through all this process we assure the best quality coffee from the Antigua Region.
