Alberto “Beto” Reyes is our green-buyer’s associate based in Chalatenango, El Salvador, where he provides sourcing support to Cafe Imports senior green-coffee buyer Piero Cristiani.
Beto is the most qualified and experienced cupper in the area, and has been a coffee professional since the 1990s, when he worked for one of the local cooperatives. In addition to being able to identify high-quality lots, he’s also able to offer his technical and lot-separation expertise to producers in order to help them earn more money per quintal. He often works alongside his son in the field to pass along his passion and knowledge about coffee.
