Franco Chavez bought Finca La Villa 38 years ago and since then has managed the farm and its coffee cultivation. The farm is located 8.5km from Villamoreno in the Buesaco Municipality.
Franco’s processing strategies are based on recommendations from technicians at the local Cooperativa de Cafes Especiales de Nariño, who handled this lot’s dry milling. Finca La Villa’s elevation makes overall temperatures on the farm lower than average, meaning Franco has more flexibility with processing. He is able to ferment the coffee for 16 hours after processing to give the sugars in the mucilage maximum contact time with the bean before fully washing and drying in a solar dryer.
This is the first coffee we've purchased through Ally Coffee and are so excited to share Franco Chavez coffee with y'all. This coffee hits all the marks and is sure to be a crowd pleaser.
