Notes Enter our Guatemala La Danta, another great coffee from Finca El Rincón. Steeped in history, just like the family responsible for its production, this coffee is named after one of the largest Mayan pyramids, La Danta Temple of El Mirador.
Jorge Vides was a doctor and patriarch of the Vides family. In 1958, he bought a piece of land, surrounded by forests, in La Libertad, Huehuetenango. It was here that he founded his family’s very first coffee farm, Finca La Bolsa, planting it out with beautiful Bourbon and Caturra varieties protected by the warm, dry winds from the Tehuantepec plain. Ever since, the wonderful Vides family has been a force to be reckoned with in speciality Guatemalan coffee production. Milling, grading, bagging and preparing their own coffee for export, the family receives the entire FOB price for their product.
With a staunch commitment to sustainability, the Vides family integrates environmentally friendly practices and supports local communities by building schools and sharing their rich agronomy knowledge. We’re constantly impressed by how much Maria and her family invest back into their community.
Rumble is stoked to have La Danta back in 2020, a special year that marks our second purchase of this lot and third year working with the Vides family. This awesome coffee holds a special place in our heart: it’s a key part of our famed Haymaker blend!
