Guatemala Los Pinos Washed Anaerobic Filter - Single Origin
Vides58, is a family company with 6 farms; one of them Los Pinos. It was founded by Jorge Vides in 1958. Jorge's career began in medicine where he eventually became the director of the National Hospital of Huehuetenango, which was later named after him to honour his contributions. Although Jorge was a full-time doctor, his real passion was his farm Finca La Bolsa. His land at the time was then covered in forest, which he turned into a coffee farm cultivating bourbon and caturra varietals.
In 2001, Vides' grandson Renardo Ovalle took over production to focus on specialty coffee production. The company is still passionate about innovation, precision, and quality, with a sustainability model based on three pillars: social, agricultural, and environmental.
In 2013, Renardo planted coffee in several plots and named the farm Los Pinos after the pine trees that grow in the area. The plantation is in Santa Barbara where rainfall is scarce compared to other regions. The coffee varieties planted here are Caturra, Bourbon, and Pacamara.
