Farm Info

The Cauca Blend is a washed coffee, produced by a small coffee growers association called Asociación Nuevo Futuro.  Nuevo Futuro is a coffee growers association with more than 200 families spread across five municipalities in the department of Cauca, mainly in the Timbío and El Tambo municipalities and they are organized in several local boards that share information and provide technical assistance “farmer to farmer”.

Luz Elva Chacón leads the Nuevo Futuro community of farmers, which was formed in 2008 in the municipality of Popayán. They have two segments or focuses, the first and most important of which is to consolidate their association with the certified specialty organic market. In turn, they also help non-organic coffee producers to market their coffee, additionally seeking to improve their cup quality and learn better agronomic practices. Most of these associated producers are small holders, with 1 hectare or less per farm.
