Gather
Holiday Roast

Almanac.Coffee

A Holiday
Collaboration

When we gather, we’re reminded that relationships transcend distance and geography. Holidays bring us together like no other time, and this sentiment is the ethos behind Gather Roast—the 2019 Christmas collab between Malley.Design (NE MPLS) and Almanac.Coffee (Duluth).

Not only did we team up to craft the design and roast of this year’s gift, but the coffee we sourced is a blend gathered from 8 farms owned by the Vides Family in Guatemala. Brew a pot, share a cup.

Vides Family
Story

01 02 03 /
03

In 1958, Jorge Vides, the grandfather of the family founded Finca La Bolsa. He purchased land, which was covered in forests and proceeded to cultivate bourbon and caturra varieties. While being a full-time doctor, working Monday through Friday and constantly scheduling visits to his patients from various regions of the country, the farm was his real hobby.

His passion for health led him to become Director of the National Hospital of Huehuetenango, which to this day, bears his name. His humanitarian sense extended beyond the coffee production. In 1980, he founded a school that still runs on the farm, which has since been named after him and authorized by the Ministry of Education.

Four years later, Anacafé named him "Distinguished Coffee Grower" due this success in production work. In 2001, with the second and third generation, production was turned over to dedicate itself to the production of specialty coffee.

The Vides family continue to strive for high quality specialty coffees with Rainforest Alliance certification and top results in Cup of Excellence, Exceptional Cup, PCCA and Grand Cru competitions!
