    The district of Narino in southern Colombia sits on the border with Ecuador and is home to the volcanos Dona Huana and Galeras. The rich soiled highlands between these two volcanos are home to many small coffee farms, 125 having joined the El Bombo coffee cooperative.  Founded in nearby Huila in 2016, El Bombo seeks to help farmers improve their agronomics and processes while gaining direct access to markets. Farmers within El Bombo are known for their vast experience with growing coffee under organic conditions.  

    Suggested Uses:

    • Travel - Take a box and all you need is some water or milk - hot or cold and you have Third Wave. Most coffee shops will give you a free cup of hot water, this works especially well in airports.
    • Hiking - Reward yourself with a fresh cup of coffee. Bring some hot water in a thermos or mix with iced water and shake if you're more into iced americanos.
    • Lattes - No espresso machine/grinder required! Just add the milk of your choice and make your own latte at home. Since it is freeze-dried espresso, rehydrating with milk will make a latte that even my three-year-old daughter can make it.
    • Get Creative - add it to some ice cream, smoothies, oatmeal, brownies, etc. A lot of recipes call for instant coffee, instead of using nasty cheap instant with lots of fillers, use some single-origin specialty coffee to blow your tastebuds away.
