This coffee comes from the Cauca region in the south-west of Colombia.

Before he was producing coffee, Jaime Hernando Pajoy was raised working with livestock. He fell in love with coffee when he first worked on a coffee farm aged 12, and when he turned 16 his father gave him his first hectare to plant coffee.

Jaime’s still farming coffee–along with crops of yuca, corn and plantain banana–at Finca La Selva, where he lives with his wife Emilce and daughter.

This crop is made up of three varietals: Typica, Caturra and San Bernado.

Typica is considered the original variety from which all others mutated naturally or bred. Caturra is a higher-yielding mutation discovered in Brasil in 1937 and is now common there and in Colombia. Further down the line, San Bernado is itself a mutation of Caturra.
