Finca La Bolsa was bought in 1958 to be used for coffee production, and has since won a number of awards, recently placing second in the Cup of Excellence competition. Surrounded by limestone rich soils, and sitting between two mountains gives the coffee a very unique profile, with a rich syrupy body and plenty of malic and citric acid.
La Bolsa is RFA certified and follows C.A.F.E practices and guidelines. Coffee Care funded the construction of a school and nursery at the farm, with fully trained, full time teachers. All of the temporary and permanent staff have access to schooling for their children, and are given rewards for the longer their children stay in education. As a result, there are no children working in the farm, and the school and nursery classes are full. Accommodation is provided for all workers, and certain areas of the farm are reserved as areas to promote biodiversity, reduce exposure to wind and soil erosion.
