Description:This coffee is produced by the Vides family on their farms located in Huehuetenango. The cherry is processed on their wet mill on their farm, Finca La Bolsa. Jorge Vides, patriarch of the Vides58 family-owned exporter, purchased his first coffee farm, Finca La Bolsa, in 1958. Jorge was the kind of man who poured his heart into everything he did. In addition to cultivating coffee, Jorge also worked fulltime as a physician. In the beginning, he saw patients Mondays through Fridays and worked on the farm during all other hours. He later became director of the National Hospital of Huehuetenango, which still bears his name today.  In addition to producing coffee and saving lives through medicine, Jorge founded a school on the farm in 1980. The school, authorized by the National Ministry for Education, is still educating young people in the community today. In 2001, Jorge and his children and grandchildren decided to transition the farm towards entirely growing specialty coffee. In 2002, coffee from the Vides family won 2nd place in the Guatemalan Cup of Excellence. The Vides family also established a joint program with Association Coffee Care, an organization dedicated to reducing instances of child labor by offering educational and recreational programs to children aged 2 to 14. Today, their farms are as family-owned as ever. They manage several farms, including Finca La Bolsa, Finca Terrazas and Finca El Sarral.
