Farm info

Finca La Bolsa has been cultivating coffee in La Libertad, Huehuetenango for three generations, beginning in 1958 with Jorge Vides, the farm’s founder. Mr. Vides worked full time as a doctor, visiting patients around the country and eventually becoming the Director of the National Hospital of Huehuetenango which to this day bears his name. He later came to purchase the land that is now La Bolsa, then covered in forests.

He planted Caturra and Bourbon varieties of coffee and in 1980 founded a school on the farm that is still serving students today. In 2012, Association Coffee Care opened on the farm to provide day care centers and vocational training to children 2-14 years old.

Finca La Bolsa is deeply committed to environmentally sustainable practices and actively prioritizes conservation of ecosystems by protecting wildlife, efficient use of water, and avoiding deforestation.



Huehuetenango is located in the Western highlands of Guatemala bordering Mexico. Thanks to the elevation and varied microclimates of this mountainous region, coffee from Huehuetenango is well known worldwide for its bright and crisp acidity.

Huehuetenango lies in the Los Cuchumatanes mountain range, the highest point of which is known as “La Torre,” which reaches almost 3,800 meters.
