The production spans across three veredas (districts) in Yacuanquer; Arguello, Tasnaque, and Zaragoza. There are around forty thousand coffee producers in the Nariño department, most of which are smallholder producers with an average farm size of two hectares.

This micro-lot was grown by producing families in Okapa and Bomai, both regions of Papua New Guinea. The coffee in these regions is forest-grown, meaning there is no use for herbicide and fertilizers. Producing families harvest the coffee annually, handpicking the coffee cherries. They then contribute the coffee cherries to a central location where the coffee is processed and prepared for export.
