This coffee comes from Finca la Bolsa from La Libertad terroir in the Huehuetenango region of Guatemala. It's a variety blend of red Bourbon and red Caturra. The very specific nature of this limestone terroir is reflected in the coffee's spicy and chocolatey notes. The La Libertad terroir is one of the highest in Huehuetenango appellation, giving the coffee much greater intricacy.
The farm sits at a very high altitude, which is rare to the region, but above all it differs from others in that perfection and innovation are constant priorities. This work has truly paid off in multiple awards including a Cup of Excellence in 2002. The family Ovalle, owners of Finca La Bolsa, invest a great deal in their employees. For example, they pay higher wages and have built a day-care and school for the children of their employees.
