RENADO OVALLE - filter roast


gold plum/red grape

Roasted Monday 23rd May 2022

Finca La Bolsa was founded as a hobby in 1958 by Renado's grandfather, Jorge Vides, a doctor at the National Hospital of Huehuetenango.

When Jorge bought the land it was covered in thick forest. As a keen environmentalist, Jorge cultivated a sizeable quantity of Caturra and Bourbon trees while developing a farming system that would protect wildlife, conserve water and avoid deforestation. The farm is now overseen by Renado and other members of the Vides family. It is also home to a school and various other initiatives to support the local communities.

*This lot is Bourbon, Caturra and Catuaí. At harvest, the coffee cherries are handpicked when fully ripe. They are then pulped and fermented, washed, and then finally dried on raised beds.
