About the bean:
In 1958, Jorge Vides, founded Finca La Bolsa, a coffee plantation located in La Libertad, Huehuetenango. While working as a full-time doctor, the farm was his real hobby. His passion for health led him to become the Director of the National Hospital of Huehuetenango, which to this day, bears his name.
Jorge Vides brought the land, which was then covered in forest, and proceeded to cultivate bourbon and caturra varietals. Now a third generation of producers, with his grandson Renado Ovalle now overseeing production. Vides is still a company passionate about innovation, precision, and quality.
In 1956 Roberto Molina acquired the farm and began to plant caturra, bourbon and catuai. In 2012 after his death, his wife Yolanda Garrido de Molina worked the farm until 2016, from that year the nephews of Roberto Molina (Vides Family) oversee the production of the farm with washed, natural and honey coffees. This microlot has been processed using anaerobic fermentation for 72 hours in cherry and 36 hours in a tank, before it is taken to dry on the patio for 16 days and raked to ensure even drying. The coffee grows among Inga shade, has a temperature consistently sitting between 19-24°C, humidity 70-80%. The age of the coffee trees has an average age of 20 years.
