Nuevo Futuro is a coffee farmer association in the Caucu region of Colombia. Luz Elva Chacon is the dynamic and inspiring leader of Nuevo Futuro. The group consist of 550 smallholder farmers producing coffees within 7 sub-regions of Cauca. The group is built around clear principles and values that require collaboration and commitment from their members. Because families are spread out over seven municipalities, they have organized themselves into local boards that meet every other month at a different farm. Because they have limited resources, they rely on each other for technical assistance, practicing a “farmer to farmer” training. Most of the farmers are organic certified producing Colombia, Caturra and Castillo varietals.
As a mixed coffee, these lots produce 84-85 point coffees with great complexity and body with citrus fruits and a sweet finish.
Colors of Nature(CNC) was established in 2007 by Felipe Ramirez as a pilot project to educate coffee farmers in impoverished/conflict regions of southern Colombia on cultivating quality coffee. They have succeeded in implementing modern farm technologies on smallholder farms throughout the country and just inaugurated a new research facility this year. Currently working in 13 provinces( including Huila, Narino, Cauca, Risaralda and Cesar), Colors of Nature and its nearly 1,200 smallholder farmers are producing up to 60 micro and 15 high-premium lots each year with majority of these coffees sold to Japan, Hong Kong, Australia and North America.
With a portfolio that includes washed, naturals and honey processes; we are confident that CNC can provide the highest quality micro-lots from the region.
