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.

The location

Coffee from Colombia

Colombia is one of the largest coffee producers in the world and benefits greatly from having one of the most unique and complex set of micro-climates of all coffee producing nations.


The Cauca region of Colombia

Attractive growing conditions afforded by its altitude, proximity to the equator and the protection afforded by surrounding mountains, enabling a stable microclimate year round. Cauca is a region also known for its World Heritage listed national parks, wildlife, and life-giving water sources

Farm processes

Washed process

Machines are used to remove the flesh from the coffee cherry before being fermented in water, washed again, and finally sun dried. This process tends to result in more distinct, cleaner flavours.
