So far removed from the center of Guatemala that it's almost in Mexico, La Libertad, Huehuetenango is the most northerly coffee region we purchase from. Here, where the tail-end of the great American Cordillera spills over from Mexico (where it's referred to as the Sierra Madre de Chiapas), Huehuetenango is the only Guatemalan growing area characterized not by volcanic soil, but clay-loam soil.
Finca La Bolsa is cradled at the base of two large mountains to which it owes its name meaning, "the bag." La Bolsa was Initially planted in 1958 - when the land was purchased from Finca El Injerto - by Dr. Jorge Vides Molina. Today the farm is owned and operated by his grandson Renardo Ovalle.
This selection from La Bolsa exudes the red fruit profiles for which Huehuetenango is known and of which we just can’t get enough.
We believe the coffee experience is our responsibility from seed to cup. Coffee is our craft, our ritual, our passion. It drives us and inspires us. With this simple truth and responsibility we are bridging the gap from farmlevel to streetlevel.
