San Agustin, a pre-Colombian civilization that flourishes in the mountains where the Magdalena River is born, is the home to the Imbachi family. Before being a coffee producer, Carlos Imbachi, Ever’s father, worked as a treasure hunter!

He used to look for artefacts left by the native indigenous in San Agustin and sold them to collectors. With the money he earned from doing this, he constructed a house in the vereda La Argentina with his family. In his new house, he started to grow coffee and other farm products.

Since then, Finca Buena Vista has been a perfect example of a family business.

Ever Armando was born and raised in this traditional coffee growing family and ever since he can remember, he has been surrounded by coffee. Ever learned everything he knows about coffee from his father. When he was only 10 years old, Carlos gave a piece of land to each son for them to start producing coffee and continue with the family tradition. Recently, Ever decided to expand this land and purchased 1 additional hectare plot of his father’s farm to continue paving his own path.

Today, Carlos is in charge of managing the farm while Ever and his brother Diego are responsible for the whole post-harvest process. They like to share their knowledge and experiences between them to become better every day.

The quality of life of the Imbachi family has improved significantly since they started producing specialty coffee. They have been able to improve their drying structure and buy a small truck to deliver their coffee to the Caravela warehouse in San Agustin.

Ever feels very proud to be working on improving the quality of the family crop. Being acknowledged and well-known for producing specialty coffee makes him feel proud and motivates him to become better every day. In his free time, when his not working on the farm, he likes to play soccer with his friends.

Varietals

Caturra varietal

Caturra is a natural mutation of Bourbon that was originally discovered in Brazil in 1937, considered to be the first naturally occurring mutation ever discovered.

The location

Coffee from Colombia

Colombia is one of the largest coffee producers in the world and benefits greatly from having one of the most unique and complex set of micro-climates of all coffee producing nations.

Farm processes

Washed process

Machines are used to remove the flesh from the coffee cherry before being fermented in water, washed again, and finally sun dried. This process tends to result in more distinct, cleaner flavours.
