ABOUT THE COFFEE / REGION

Grupo Asociativo El Bombo Pitalito Inza, Asombombo for short, was founded by Luis Alfredo Diaz to increase market 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 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 women also benefit from this work toward gender and opportunity equality.  

In 2023, Asobombo conducted extensive research and conversations with community members to identify the biggest issues facing coffee farming families in their cooperative and begin addressing those issues. What they found was that monocultural agricultural practices caused food insecurity and imbalanced eating habits for families. They also found that a lack of knowledge and opportunities about sensory coffee improvement restricted family income.

Their analysis showed that gender inequality was a key factor in achieving sustainability and livable incomes for their members. When women are empowered in the family and business, they can be key drivers for social and economic improvement. Thus, Asobombo’s Women’s Group is focused on strengthening gender equity and creating more opportunities for women and their families to learn about balanced diets, resource allocation and coffee quality improvement.

        Parcel Post by AustPost normally takes under 6 business days and Express Post by AustPost normally under 3 business days.

        Upon receiving your order, we generally send your order out within two business days as we aim for you to have the freshest roast possible.

        We do have roast schedule's and some orders may be delayed waiting for those roast days - we will let you know if there's any lengthy delays.

        *Sundays and Public Holidays access are closed

        Place your order, then give us some time to roast and pack for you (usually less than two business days).

        Once received ready for pickup notification, come in, check in, and say hi to either Matty or Po.

        Can you grind my coffee?

        Sorry, we sell whole beans only.

         
        The reason being is that pre-grinding freshly roasted coffee means that it affects the integrity of the coffee and this makes the coffee expire a lot faster. It's like having artisan bread being pre-sliced or a piece of fruit being left out in the sun!

        I have other questions
