COLOMBIA ORGANIC HUILA EL BOMBO GRAINPRO is sourced from family-owned farms organized around El Bombo, a producer association with 50 members who live in the communities of Laguna del Bombo, La Laguna, El Paraíso, El Porvenir, Alto Planes, Laguna Verde, and Laguna Chiquita within the municipality of Pitalito in the department of Huila, Colombia. El Bombo was founded in 2013 to focus on quality coffee production and to establish direct trade relationships. El Bombo collaborates with an export company called Lohas Beans to establish connections in the specialty coffee market, which has improved coffee prices for its members and enables farmers to reinvest in their farms and provide for their families. El Bombo has also successfully built their own cupping lab, which provides members with cupping data on 100% of their harvest. This immediate feedback has helped members make informed decisions about farm management and post-harvest processing.
