Nuevo Futuro Association is located in Popayan in Cauca and was founded in 1995 as a part of a program to eradicate illicit crops in Cauca with the support of GTZ (the German development agency) and the National Coffee Growers Association in the South of Cauca. The members began their activities before the association became a legal entity when organic coffee was being promoted as an alternative to illicit crops. Today the association has 200 farmer members who are located in the municipalities of El Tambo, Piendamó, Buenos Aires, Santander de Quilichao, La Vega, and Timbío. The Coop is also involved in programs promoting the production of food on their members farms which they have started to sell at local markets. They are structured into local groups where they have initiated farmer to farmer training on technical assistance for coffee growing and crop management. The coffees are pulped on the farm in a traditional beneficio on small pulping machines before then being dry fermented in tiled tanks overnight for 12-16 hours. After this the coffees are dried for 7- 10 days in parabolic tents on raised beds.
