Franceny comes form a coffee growing family, and enjoys producing coffee because it is “a legal crop, easy to sell, and generates employment”. She started with 1000 trees, and have expanded their farm, La Palma, to 10 hectares. After harvest, their coffee is pre-fermented in a wooden hopper for 20 hours, pulped, and fermented in ceramic covered tanks for another 20 hours. The beans are washed three times with any defectives being removed. The coffee is dried in a parabolic dryer for the following 15 days.
Cauca is in central-western Colombia, stretching from the Western Cordillera mountain range to the Pacific Ocean. Ocean winds and elevation result in Cauca being one of the coolest regions of the country. The coffee in this area is grown mostly by indigenous or Afro-descendant communities.
