About the Farmer

Renardo Ovalle is the third generation of his family to produce coffee in the Huehuetenango region in the north of Guatemala. He owns the La Bolsa, El Rincon, and Las Terrazas farms. The company was renamed Vides 58 in homage to his grandfather, Jorge Vides, who created the farm. Renardo is supported by his parents and his wife, Jacqueline, who uses her discerning palate and Q Grader training to help define the profiles and characteristics of each of the farm's coffees.

A doctor by profession, Jorge Vides bequeathed a humanist philosophy that still influences the farm's development and the Ovalle family today. They are involved in numerous social projects aimed at improving the living and working conditions of their employees. They have created a daycare facility for the workers' children, provide balanced meals, and even pay a higher wage than most of the other farms in the country. The human dimension is still a priority concern for the producer.

The farm is located at a very high altitude, which is rare, but above all, it differs from the others in that perfection and innovation are constant priorities. Here, coffee quality remains a primary concern. The harvesting and drying processes are regularly reviewed and improved to ensure exceptional coffee. And this work has paid off, since La Bolsa has won numerous awards for the quality of its coffees, including a Cup of Excellence in 2002.

Produced by the La Bolsa farm, this micro-lot is cultivated in one of the highest "Ventana Grande" plots. Grown in a limestone soil characteristic of the Huehuetenango region, this unique coffee benefits from the ideal weather conditions in which it is produced. The farm's owner, Renardo, receives daily help from his wife Jacqueline who establishes profiles and characteristics for the farm's coffees. This coffee bears her name followed by the score she gave it, in honor of her passion and expertise.
