El Patio is a lot produced by Renardo Ovalle, the farm manager and head of coffee, where the coffee is grown right next to the patio were most of the lots are dried, hence the name.
Finca La Bolsa was bought by Jorge Vides. Prior to this the land wasn’t used for coffee production but since, Jorge won a number of awards for coffee production and for services to the region of Huehuetenango, and had the main hospital in the coffee growing community named after him. The estate sits between two mountains, which provide a very stable, humid microclimate. This, combined with the limestone rich soils, give the coffee a very unique profile, with a rich syrupy body and citric acidity.
