Description

Guatemalan La Bolsa coffee is one of our favourites. A medium roast with a silky smooth body. Deliciously sweet; Hibiscus, red fruits and grenadine, orange marmalade and sponge cake.

The coffee is grown in the Huehuetenango region of Guatemala. Finca La Bolsa is situated between two mountains, this creates a stable and humid microclimate. These growing conditions give the coffee beans their unique flavour profile.

In particular, we like to showcase our love of Peruvian coffee, from our friends at Freeman Trading, who trade with the tribal people of Peru. They pay a great price to the farmers, for growing fantastic coffee. Like the small farmer, the small independent roasteries and cafes can offer people something very special and not available at the supermarket.

About us

Origin Notes

Finca La Bolsa was bought by Jorge Vides in 1958, prior to this the land wasn't used for coffee production. Jorge has won a number of awards for his coffee production and his services to the region of Huehuetenango. La Bolsa sits between two mountains,which provide a very stable, humid microclimate. This combined with the limestone rich soils give the coffee a very unique profile, with a rich syrupy body and plenty of malic and citric acidity. Coffee is fermented for between 18 and 24 hrs and is then cleaned of mucilage, graded in channels and soaked overnight.
La Bolsa has a strong commitment to improving social welfare for it's workers and families and to ensuring healthy environmental practises. A school and accommodation are provided on site for all workers and their families. Inga trees are grown for shade and to fix nitrogen in the soil which is essential for plant and cherry growth. In addition there is an extensive composting operation in place to deal with waste using red worms.
