The ASOBOMBO association is bent on bringing generational
change to Huila’’s coffee community. Nearly half of the 170
young producer members are women, and they all work
together as one to strengthen their land with both traditional
customs and modern approaches to agriculture. Their
smallholder farms are nestled in the south of Huila, near the
majestic Salto de Bordones waterfall, at altitudes ranging from
1600 to 2000masl.
ASOBOMBO is headed by a team of five, dividing their work into
representation, management, and quality control.
Empowerment and independence are at the forefront of
ASOBOMBO’s model, and they focus on agricultural guidance to
develop better agronomy and fermentation practices. The
producers are committed to organic agriculture as the pathway
to achieving their dreams of high-value coffee and farm
sustainability. With certification premiums like USDA Organic,
participating farmers can receive an average of 35% more
income for their raw coffee.
This Pink Bourbon Colombia green coffee, sourced in
partnership with Lohas Beans, was fermented in cherry for 36
hours, washed, and sun-dried for 20 days to achieve floral and
fruity notes with a bright acidity and silky body.
