Nuevo Futuro: The Colombian Farm of New Futures

Nuevo Futuro or New Futures is a small association of 200 indigenous Colombian coffee producers. These producers are led by the dynamic, Luz Elva Chacon. Chacon feels Nuevo Futuro will be successful because they work together to promote ownership and income diversification for each farmer.

With the help of Coffee Lovers like you, Nuevo Futuro are investing in new food security projects. These projects include home gardens, new clean water systems, and chicken and egg production. These projects will diversify the income and food sources of Nuevo Futuro. These projects will provide a much needed source of protein and additional income for the families to build their future together.

  1. Does Nuevo Futuro have the Smithsonian Migratory Bird Center’s “Bird Friendly” certification? If not, is that a goal?

    1. Graham,

      Great question. Nuevo Futuro is actually currently working toward Rainforest Alliance certification.

      Thanks for your comment.
