In the northern department of Cajamarca in Peru, in the municipality of Jaen, we meet Wilder Saavedra, a committed and eager coffee grower. He welcomes us at his farm La Palma, about 1 hectare in size, with his wife Ormecinda Perez. He started producing coffee about 10 years ago though it has been a gradual process. Since the beginning he has been quick to establish his goals and from the third year onwards he has been able to expand the size of his farm, invest in improvements in his house and the wet mill. After 8 years he decided to switch to specialty coffee with the assessment of the PECA technician with whom he was able to have ideas on how to improve the quality and produce specialty coffee that suited what foreign roasters were looking for. He has enjoyed the years of producing high-quality coffee, but he has his goals set to keep learning and improving the quality of his coffee. To achieve this, he wants to make some improvements to his wet mill and start planting new varieties to have diversity. Wilder is a man of dedication and passion. Working on the farm alongside his wife, he believes he can achieve great things. As a parting message he wants to tell you “THank you for preferring my coffee and I want to let you know that I always give the best of me, effort, and dedication to achieve a coffee that you like”

What makes up Peru La Palma?

The location

Coffee from Peru

Peru is well suited to coffee cultivation and production, given its high altitude and climate.

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.
