This coffee comes from the Planadas region of Colombia, where Aleyda Reinoso Rivera runs Finca El Oasis.
Aleyda and her husband didn’t decide to produce coffee by chance – she chose coffee due to her passion for the land, the love she has for coffee, and because she wants, someday, to produce the best coffee in the world.
While she’s been producing coffee for 10 years, it was only four years ago that she decided to focus more attention and care on her coffee trees and pay more attention to the quality of processes at farm level. She believes Finca El Oasis is a privileged piece of land due to its altitude, climate, and the panoramic views from her farm.
When she produced her very first micro-lot (a lot of coffee which is high quality and able to sold to quality-focussed specialty coffee roasters), she was proud to see her farm’s progress and that she was now producing excellent coffee.
Her short-term plans are to continue producing excellent quality coffees and reinvest in her farm to improve her infrastructure, upgrade her drying station and improve her family home.
