About this Coffee

Grupo Asociativo El Bombo Pitalito Inza, Asombombo for short, was founded by Luis Alfredo Diaz to increasemarket access and attain fair, sustainable prices for their coffee. Today, more than 80 members are Organic certified and sell their coffees with Asobombo to garner higher prices for their hard work.

This lot was produced by 15 female members of Asobombo who live and farm in Huila. They are Organic certified and dedicated to producing high-quality specialty coffees through careful cultivation and processing. They continue to invest the premiums from their coffee into improving their farm and processing infrastructure and they’re always looking to learn new processing techniques to improve overall quality. In total, about 60 women in Huila and Cauca are a part of Asobombo’s women’s program. The cooperative estimates that, indirectly, about 180 people (children,spouses and other family members) of those 60 womenalso benefit from this work toward gender and opportunity equality.


Harvest & Post-Harvest


The women contributing to this lot and their families selectively handpick ripe, red cherry and process it on their farms. They pulp cherry on small hand crank pulpers and ferment it in tanks for 12 to 36 hours. Following fermentation, parchment is washed in clean water and laid in parabolic beds, marquesinas or patios to dry. They rake parchment frequently to ensure evendrying.

Asobombo is offering training and support in physical and sensory improvement during post-harvest practices. Coffee farmers in the cooperative can access these services to help them improve coffee quality and ultimately, the price they receive for their coffee.
