Reyes family have the passion for the natural environment of the farms. They are carrying out reforestation projects where they have the space on each farm. They believe this contributes massively to the ecology of the environment providing shelter and shade for the coffee, organic matter, cooler air and creation of micro-climates. They also have a no hunting policy to help foster bird and animal life, again to contribute to the ecosystem.
