The Department of Cauca is located in the South West of Colombia between the Pacific Region and the Andean region. The Department covers an area of 29,308 km2 and has a total population of 1.3 million.

The Cauca coffee plantations are developed at altitudes from 1800m to 2100m, in soils mostly of volcanic soil, which provides special features to the coffee cup. The total area planted with coffee is over 88,830 hectares in 32 municipalities of the 42 in the department, distributed between around 96,000 farmers. Cauca coffee has a tradition dating back to the nineteenth century, the quality of coffee in this region is due in large part to smallholder crops that allow farmers to collect and benefit coffee in a traditional way, obtaining coffee qualities recognized by international markets. The average farm size is 0.8 hectares.

Four coffee provinces can be distinguished in Cauca, each with different cultural, climate and social characteristics: the eastern region, northern region, southern region and the plateau region of Popayán. About 65% of coffee production is developed in the plateau region, with particularly homogeneous land and climatic characteristics throughout the area, which is one of the fundamental conditions to keep the consistency of the cup.
