Marta Isabel Villaquiran Salazar owns the 0.5-hectare farm called El Futuro. She grows 2,000 Caturra trees on the very small farm. After picking the cherries ripe and depulping them, she allows the beans to ferment for 24 hours in their mucilage before washing. The coffee is laid to dry in the sun for 15 days.
This lot was an entrant in the first Inzá Cup competition hosted by Banexport, also known as Concurso de Cafes de Alta Calidad: Inzá-Cauca. Finca El Futuro took sixth place in the contest.
