In 1958, Jorge Vides, founded Finca La Bolsa, a coffee plantation located in La Libertad, Huehuetenango.
While working as a full-time doctor, the farm was his hobby. His passion for health led him to become the Director of the National Hospital of Huehuetenango, which to this day, bears his name.
Jorge Vides brought the land, which was then covered in forest, and proceeded to cultivate bourbon and caturra varietals. Now a third generation of producers, with his grandson Renado Ovalle overseeing production. Vides is still a company passionate about innovation, precision, and quality.

Sustainability: The plantations owned by Vides have a sustainability model based on three pillars:

- Social aspect: Working alongside neighbourhood communities to support the development of this region. Jorge had a humanitarian sense which extended beyond coffee production. In 1980, Jorge founded a school that still runs on the farm.

- Agricultural: Agronomists teach good agronomic practices, with sustainable and environmentally friend priorities based on the Rainforest Alliance standards.

- Environmental: With a goal to focus on conservation of ecosystems by protecting wildlife, the efficient use of water and avoiding deforestation.

In 1956 Roberto Molina acquired the farm and began to plant caturra, bourbon and catuaí. In 2012 after his death, his wife Yolanda Garrido de Molina worked the farm until 2016, from that year the nephews of Roberto Molina (Vides Family) oversee the production of the farm with washed, natural and honey coffees.

- Pour in 20g of coarse-ground coffeeAdd 60g of water per pour 5 times, waiting 45s between each pour. This results in a total brew of 300g.

- Control the balance of the coffee by modifying the 1st and 2nd pours. For a sweeter brew, make a smaller first pour (e.g. 50g). For more acidity, a larger one will do the trick.
