The best place to farm Elite Combat rated ships are Compromised Nav Beacons (CNBs).
Those CNBs are just like "normal" Nav Beacons close to stars, but are swarming with Wanted smaller ships such as Eagles, Cobras, Vipers, Adders, and Haulers.
As soon as you drop from Super Cruise scan the ships spawning and attack Elite ships at will.

An excellent resource to find CNBs is http://www.hozbase.co.uk/elitedangerous - select "Bounty Hunting Systems" in the list, type in the system name of your current location, and the website will generate a list bounty hunting systems sorted by distance. Look for the column "Has Compromised Navigation Beacon" and make your way to that system.

Be warned though: If you carry cargo or a bounty even from a different system, chances are high that you will be attacked within the CNB area.

It is also recommended to use a somewhat engineered combat ship yourself. Although it is possible to farm Elite ships with "stock" ships, it is way easier to wreck havoc if you're sitting in a murder machine yourself.

Last but not least, killing Elite Combat rated Commanders in CQC does count towards this achievement, if you feel inclined towards boosting it.
