JHONNY SAAVEDRA

Producer Profile

We are happy to welcome back Jhonny’s coffee to the menu this year. This time around, we selected two sweet, round, and delicious lots from Jhonny’s Farm, El Acerillo, in El Huabo. Jhonny and his wife Cleotilde, have been growing coffee on their four hectare farm for 13 years. Prior to working with Origin Coffee Lab, they produced coffee for a large local cooperative that did not pay enough. For the last five years of working with Origin, their profitability has increased drastically. They have replanted much of their farm and have adopted new agricultural practices that have increased both their yield and quality.

Cajamarca

San Ignacio sits at the north of Cajamarca on the border with Ecuador. The Eastern and Western Andes meet in the region, helping create distinct microclimates that are ideal for growing high-quality coffee.

Marshell

The exact origins of Marshell are not yet known. It has grown in popularity in recent years due to its high yield and robustness. It appears to be Bourbon descended, but it is unclear whether it is a snatural mutation or a deliberate hybrid that was never completed.
