Jhony Saavedra

Jhony and his wife, Cleotilde, have been growing coffee on their 4 hectare farm in El Huabo for 13 years. Prior to meeting Origin Coffee Lab (exporter) and Apex, our importing partner, they worked with a large local cooperative who did not pay them very well for their coffee. Since working with Origin, their profitability has improved dramatically. They have replanted most of their farm and adopted new agricultural practices that have helped improve both quality and yield with production reaching levels that would not have been possible working with the co-op. For the next harvest, they also plan to plant more unconventional varieties to diversify the farm’s offerings.


Cajamarca is a department in northern Peru, ensconced by the Andean mountain range. There is a vast diversity of flavour profiles coming out of the many micro-regions within Cajamarca. Across the department, smallholder producers make up the majority of production.


Marshell was discovered recently in Peru. Anecdotally, Marshall is being called a bourbon type variety that might be a cross with an Ethiopian landrace. Not much is truly known about it. It could be an intentional hybrid or it could be a natural mutation. The variety appears to be hardy, but there is no confirmation that it is resistant to rust.


De-pulped and then dry fermented for 18 hours prior to washing. Patio dried for 18-20 days.
