Luis Reinoso farms coffee with his wife, Yenni, in a cool, lush micro-terroir tucked away in a remote valley in Herrera, Tolima. The farm receives ample rainfall and just enough sun during midday as it peaks over the eastern hills, before falling behind the western peaks just a few hours later. A river runs through the base of the farm providing plenty of water and a cool breeze.
Aside from supreme growing conditions, it is humility and commitment that mark the work of the Reinoso family’s coffee. When talking about the coffee that bears his name, Luis is always quick to point out that he and his wife, Yenni, are partners and it’s a family effort. Together they process their coffee right outside their bedroom and dry it on the roof of their home that sits in the middle of the farm where they live with their children.
