Jose Rafael Reyes Pabon was born ninety years ago in the small viillage of Chilcal Bajo, La Union, Nariño. Jose is the eldest of five sons. From a very young age, he decided to dedicate his life to farming. Over a lifetime, he has gained renown in the area for his dedication to continuous improvement in harvesting and processing great coffee.
Jose has seven sons who are continuing to farm, as is traditional in the coffee trade: knowledge and craft passed down from generation to generation. Jose’s land is now the result of his own lifetime of hard work, caring for the farm and building it into the fantastic producer it is today. This lot from El Ojo de Agua contains a very special variety called Gesha.
Ojo De Agua brings notes of bright red fruits and fresh grapefruit, balanced with a beautifully sophisticated florality.
