Asotbilbao was founded in 2010, originally by 35 members who graduated from SENA-Colombias' Higher Education National Service. They wanted to serve as a bridge between the Governmental institutions and coffee producers, to enhance coffee quality and productivity.

Currently Asotbilbao has members from different areas of Bilbao, Municipality of Planadas in South Tolima. They pride themselves on their organizational skills, their high cup scores and their Organic and Fair Trade certifications. Currently, they are working to implement more technical support for farmers and guide them on the best agricultural practices for quality coffee production. They would also like to invest in projects focused on the improvement of coffee farm infrastructure.
