This Rainforest Alliance-certified coffee comes from Finca La Bolsa in Guatemala, where coffee grows with an abundance of water, volcanic soil and distinct micro-climates. The plantation of Bourbon and Caturra coffee trees has been run by the Vides family since 1958.  It all began in 1958 when Dr. Vides bought a piece of land named La Bolsa, located in La Libertad, Huehuetenango. He began to grow coffee until the entire farm was cultivated with Bourbon and Caturra varietals. In the beginning, he traveled on horseback to get to the farm, about 6 kilometers from the Interamerican Highway. Dr. Vides loved this land and was anxious to work the farm by cultivating, harvesting, and producing high-quality coffee. In 1984, Guatemala's National Coffee Association (ANACAFE) awarded Dr. Vides the "Outstanding Coffee Grower" award. Since 1995, the farm has been run by his daughter, Maria Elena Vides, and his grandson, Renardo Ovalle.
