La Bolsa

Huehuetenango, Guatemala

In the late 1950s, Dr. Jorge Vides, a renowned doctor at the National Hospital of Huehuetenango, bought La Bolsa coffee farm. Named after the land’s bag-like shape, La Bolsa is among the more beautiful farms in Central America, blessed with small creeks weaving throughout, and cavernous rock formations and cliffs. an archetypal tropical jungle environment. La Bolsa’s combination of exceptional soil and climate, nearly perfected plant husbandry, clean processing and diligent drying have earned it many accolades. Today, Maria Elena Vides de Ovalle, with the help of her husband and son, manage the farm with pride. it is the great care they show, their quality practices, and the preservation of heirloom varieties (Bourbon and Caturra) that make their coffees so special and sought after. We are enjoying a sort of focused complexity inside this coffee beginning with ripe nectarine and candied lemon, and opening to reveal light honey, lavender, and raspberry. performs with grace across many brew methods.
