Marrying the best of both worlds – the Pacamara variety and the Huehuetenango growing region – this lot of La Bolsa Pacamara delivers on both the fruit-forward profile of its cultivar and the complex spice bouquet for which it’s origin is known.
So far removed from the center of Guatemala that it’s almost in Mexico, La Libertad, Huehuetenango is the most northerly coffee region we purchase from. Here, where the tail-end of the great American Cordillera spills over from Mexico (where it’s referred to as the Sierra Madre de Chiapas), Huehuetenango is the only Guatemalan growing area characterized not by volcanic soil, but clay-loam soil.
Finca La Bolsa is cradled at the base of two large mountains to which it owes it’s name meaning, “the bag.” La Bolsa was Initially planted in 1958 – when the land was purchased from Finca El Injerto – by Dr. Jorge Vides Molina. Today the farm is owned and operated by his grandson Renardo Ovalle.
This stunning lot represents one of the first crops of La Bolsa Pacamara to reach the market and we’re beyond excited to be the sole purchasers of which.
