The Juan Valdez trade name came from the Colombian Coffee Growers Association nearly half a century ago. It is meant to give the buyer assurance that the coffee they purchase is 100% Colombian. Although there is a popular Juan Valdez coffee house chain in Colombia the name Juan Valdez is simply meant to guarantee 100% Colombian content. This can be an issue in current days as the recent El Niño drastically reduced coffee harvests in the Colombian Cafetero forcing growers to import coffee beans from Peru. Nevertheless, The Colombian Cafetero is still a major coffee producer where growing organic coffee in the shade is tradition and great organic coffee is common.
