"Ventana Grande" Vides 58 is a family company, owning and operating several farms in the La Libertad region of Huehuetenango, Guatemala. Their story begins over 6 decades ago with Jorge Vides, who was a highly esteemed doctor who travelled all around the country treating his patients. In 1958, he founded the first Vides family farm “Finca La Bolsa”, which continues to produce fantastic coffee to this day. "Ventana Grande" (meaning big window), is a part of this farm. Now 3 generations into coffee production, the company is managed by Jorge’s grandson Renardo and daughter María, who continue the family legacy of exporting fantastic, sustainably produced coffees. The Vides family has become world renowned for not only the delicious coffee they produce but the positive impact they have on the local community in Huehuetenango. They are heavily involved in environmental conservation, development of schools in the local area and improving the living conditions of their workers.
