Metric - Peru El Goyo
In 2017, Elmer Guevara, a 4th generation coffee farmer, heard about a new coffee exporter that was trying to change the system for Peruvian coffee and do things differently. Skeptical, Elmer went to Jaen to check out this new exporter, named Origin Coffee Lab. Based on his initial visit and talking to the owners, Elmer and his wife Leyla decided to turn in just a few bags of their coffee in late 2017 and were paid better based on quality than they had in previous years.
In 2018, Elmer and Leyla turned in more coffee to Origin Coffee Lab and even helped others in his community to turn in coffee and start working with Origin Coffee Lab. Through separating varieties, and focusing on cherry selection and processing, Elmer and Leyla have been among the best producers of coffees that Origin Coffee Lab exports. They have also become a key link to other growers in the communities of Bomboka and Vista Alegre in the region of Colasay.
