Reyna is the youngest sibling of the Padilla family whose coffee we buy as part of a project with Drumroaster Coffee in Cobble Hill, BC. Three years ago, the Padillas invested in individual fermentation tanks and raised, covered, drying beds on shade cloth. Each year the cups show improvement. The potential for their coffees is steadily being realized, cup scores are up, so the greater volume of coffees they produce now fetch a premium from smart buyers. That's us :) La Coipa is a perfect location for growing beautiful coffees, bringing deserved attention to the stellar coffees of San Ignacio, Cajamarca.  This year's lot has more buoyant red fruit and florals than previously. It's lovely.
