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. 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 and invest in technical improvements.

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 opened up his market possibilities.

He has enjoyed the years of producing high-quality coffee, but his goals are to keep learning and improving. In the near future, he plans to renovate his wet mill and plant new varieties to offer more diversity.

Wilder is a man of dedication and passion. He believes he can achieve great things while working on the farm alongside his wife. He sent a message to all those who will drink his coffee: “Thank you for choosing my coffee; I want to let you know that I always give the best of me, my effort and dedication to achieve a product that you will enjoy.”

The location

Coffee from Peru

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


The Cajamarca region of Peru

The region is named after it’s capital city, Cajamarca. Comprises the northern area of Peru and the Peruvian Andes

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.
