From Apex Coffee:

Francy and her four sisters grew up helping her parents at the coffee farm, which inspired her to major in Agronomy to provide support and management for the family business. She completed her university degree through distance learning all while working on her farm to pay for her studies. After graduating in 2019, she began working at the FNC as a Field Assistant around her hometown of Arboleda, Nariño. She also gained experience in sensory development by working at a private export lab in Buesaco. In her own words, "I became even more interested in coffee and day by day I wanted to learn more about the beautiful world of coffee". Once the buying program for Apex was established in Arboleda, farmers like Francy had a connection to the international market. Francy writes, "I heard a lot about your company and my new goal was to be able to reach you with coffee from our farm as a family and especially to be able to show the coffee our people from our municipality of Arboleda because we live far away from everything and our coffee has not been recognized". Facilitating market access for farmers like Doña Francy is the primary goal of Apex and we're so proud to showcase her fantastic coffees to the world
