Organic Green Coffee From Colombia
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 agronomic practices and coffee-processing techniques. 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 washed process organic Colombia green coffee, sourced in partnership with Lohas Beans, is a regional showcase that includes Caturra, Tabi, Pink Bourbon, and Geisha varieties. A combination of sun-drying and mechanical drying is necessary for Huila’s humid climate, influenced by the Andes Mountains that envelop the valley.
Colombia Huila Green Coffee Beans
The Huila region is always a favorite when it comes to Colombian coffee. In addition to high-quality – and often award-winning – green coffee beans, Huila is also celebrated for its distinctly delicate cup profile that features bright acidity, sweetness, and a fragrant aroma.
As Colombia’s largest specialty coffee-producing department, Huila’s nutrient-rich volcanic soil bears highly anticipated unroasted coffee each year for the global market. Most Colombian coffee farmers are smallholders. Over half a million farmers collectively contribute around 16% of the country’s agricultural GDP
