FARRA is processed at Loja province, south of Ecuador. Being a dry area, 90% of coffees produced are naturally processed. South of Ecuador contributes roughly 20% of the nation's coffee production, producing some of Ecuador's finest coffees being the oldest plantation area and of higher altitudes.
Ecuador's share is a mere 0.5% of the world coffee market due to challenges that face the coffee industry. Most of the coffees grown are Arabica and Robusta, hence emphasizing the rarity of these limited crops of Caturra at such fine qualities.
