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.
