Founded In 1958 by Jorge Vides, Finca La Bolsa has since built a reputation for producing high quality and unique coffee lots from La Libertad in Huehuetenango. Taken over by Renardo Ovalle in 2001, Vides’ grandson has brought in a new level of innovation, focusing on quality and sustainability.
Vides has since expanded beyond Finca La Bolsa to encompass a selection of farms, all within their own unique microclimates. El Sendero sits between 1700 -1900masl and is cradled by two mountains,. The terroir allows for the chosen varietals of Bourbon and Caturra to flourish. Using Inga trees to create a shade canopy, the farm sits in a temperature range of 19-24°C, and benefits from a slow maturation building depth and complexity in the cup profile.
