La Bolsa is an estate in La Libertad, Huehuetenango. The farm is known for delivering consistently high quality crops. In 2002 the farm obtained second place at the national level of the Cup of Excellence, with a rating of 94.98. And since then has gone on to win numerous awards and also invitations to participate as suppliers in barista competitions.
The estate itself is situated amongst large mountains in Guatemala, and benefits from two rivers which flow through the region. The course of the rivers creates an island in the area which is used as the patio for drying and milling coffee, and is also home to the local school and farmhouse.
The rivers also serve as a natural spring, which the estate uses and donates to the surplus, the Municipio La Mesilla, at the border of Mexico. Alongside this, the farm is conscious of the environment, complying with all prerequisites of the Certification of Rainforest Alliance and C.A.F.E Practices, as well as boasting hydroelectric power throughout the estate.
