SAVAGE Coffees

Unveiling the Fourth Wave of Coffee: Savage Coffees' Innovative Processing Techniques

At SAVAGE Coffees, we are not just passionate about brewing the perfect cup of coffee; we are obsessed with redefining the coffee experience. Our commitment to innovation and flavor has led us to explore uncharted territories in coffee processing, pushing boundaries and setting new standards in the industry. At the heart of our innovative pursuits is our founder, Jamison Savage, who is renowned for his unique and inventive approaches to coffee processing.

Forging a New Path in Coffee Processing

Jamison has a reputation for being the tip of the spear when it comes to processing coffee in unique and interesting ways. It is easy to label Jamison as a coffee enthusiast. However, his passion extends far beyond conventional boundaries. His relentless pursuit of perfection has made him a pioneer in coffee processing, experimenting with different techniques, borrowing methods from multiple industries, and incorporating them into our coffee production process. The wine sector, in particular, has been a significant source of inspiration. This is where much of his knowledge and inspiration with Biodynamic cultivation, Carbonic Maceration and Anaerobic processing were developed.

Transforming Coffee with Biodynamic Cultivation, Carbonic Maceration, and Anaerobic Processing

"The wines were so alive, so vivid and expressive, I thought to myself, if I could capture and intensify similar levels of complexity inherent in my coffees, I would indeed have something even more special in the cup." - Jamison

Over the years, Jamison's fascination with the wine industry has driven him to delve deeper into advanced processing techniques like Biodynamic cultivation, Carbonic Maceration, and Anaerobic processing. These techniques have traditionally been associated with wine production. However, their application to coffee processing has opened up a new world of flavors and aromas, taking our coffee to another level of complexity and richness.

Setting New Standards in Coffee Experience

SAVAGE Coffees' revolutionary techniques have been met with much acclaim, and we are now considered to be at the forefront of the coffee industry. Our success is evidenced by multiple awards and accolades that recognize our unique approach to coffee production. As Jamison likes to put it, "We are proud to be pioneers in redefining the coffee experience; the fourth wave of coffee is here to stay."

From our founder

A Legacy Rooted in Panama's Extraordinary Landscape

8° 32' 16.7316'' N

ORIGIN: Panama

At Savage Coffees, we believe in the power of terroir. Our handcrafted legacy is deeply rooted in Panama’s extraordinary landscape, which is reflected in every grain of coffee we produce. Our coffee tells the story of its origin, carrying the essence of the soil, the climate, and the unique characteristics of the region. Our commitment to preserving this authenticity while enhancing the flavor experience is what sets us apart.

The Panamanian coffee industry is centered in the Chiriquí province of Panama’s northern highlands and is concentrated in the areas of Boquete and Volcán. Also called the Valley of Flowers and Eternal Spring, these areas are perched on the sides of the Baru Volcano and surrounding foothills. It is in these idyllic locales that truly distinct and unique coffees are produced. These highlands are blessed with terroir consisting of highly volcanic, enriched soil, abundant moisture, diverse microclimates, regular rainfall, dense vegetation, and cloud cover to nourish the coffee trees. This in turn contributes to the production of fine shade grown coffees with incredibly complex flavor characteristics.

This is the 4th wave of coffee

The plantation is a beautiful, natural environment where rare species of plants and animals are abundant and where Geisha grows to its full potential under the protection of the lush rainforest canopy.

Finca Deborah has the distinct privilege of working with some of the most talented and creative names in coffee. Our coffees have made notable progress in both national and world competition, with frequent podium finishes.

Iris Estate rests at 1850 meters / 6105 feet above sea level and stretches to nose-bleed levels of 2300 meters / 7590 feet above sea level, a new record for Latin American coffee farms.  These extreme altitudes are demanding for both the Savage Coffees’ Team and the coffee trees themselves.  The air is thin, but the soils, micro-climates, and beneficial trees compsose the perfect terroir from which to grow one of the world’s most prized Geisha coffees.

Seeded from the most noble of farms, Finca Deborah, Iris Estate has already proven itself in both the cup and World stage to produce coffees as Jamison describes, “Terroir, Variety, and Producer driven from start to finish."
