About the Producer
Finca La Bolsa is where it all started for Vides 58.
Jorge Vides bought the land in 1958 and cultivated it with Bourbon and Caturra varieties on weekends, when he wasn’t working as a doctor. To this day, the National Hospital of Huehuetenango bears his name, celebrating his time as the Director of the institution. His humanitarian spirit can also be seen extending through the work of Vides 58, most notably in the school he founded on the farm in 1980.
Dos Rios is only one of many microlots produced at Finca La Bolsa, a farm dedicated to the production of specialty coffee that celebrates the quality-focused vision of Don Jorge (his being named “Distinguished Coffee Grower” by Anacafé being a testament to that focus).
This lot undergoes a classic washed process. After handpicking to ensure only completely ripe cherries are processed, cherries are depulped and fermented for 24 hours before being dried on a patio, until they reach the required humidity and moisture level.
