Finca El Espejo from Santa Maria, Huila

Finca El Espejo is located in Santa María, Huila, Colombia, and managed by Reinel Borbon, a 48-year-old, second-generation coffee grower. The farm consists of 4 hectares of land and sits at an elevation of 1,850 m.a.s.l, with around 13,000 coffee trees in production of the Pink Bourbon, Caturra, and Colombia varieties.

Reinel’s portfolio consists of a Pink Bourbon Lot, and a Caturra/Colombia Yeast Lot: All lots start with a careful harvest of the ripest cherries and an initial 20-hour dry fermentation in cherry before being de-pulped. 

His Pink Bourbon Lot is then placed in open tanks to ferment for 48 hours before being washed and placed to dry in raised beds. For his Caturra/Colombia Lot, the wet parchment is placed in open barrels to ferment alongside Reinel’s Yeast Substrate for up to 80 hours, before being washed and placed to dry. Both lots are dried on raised beds for 14 – 18 days, depending on the weather.

Santa Maria Represent

Reinel has been in the coffee industry for more than 15 years. His farm, Finca El Espejo was originally harvesting lentils and grains, but he saw an opportunity with coffee. 

Nowadays, Reinel is one of our closest allies in Santa Maria, and has perfected his Yeast Inoculated lot over the past few harvests.

His family also helps him in the farm, and his eldest son (21) has started learning the secret Borbon recipe from his father! 

We have been working with Reinel Borbon and Finca El Espejo since 2022, and we are really proud of their work!
