Origin Story

Arturo Aguirre

El Injerto was founded by Jesús Aguirre Panamá in 1874, with the first coffee planted around 1900. Today El Injerto is managed by the fourth generation of the Aguirre family. The farm is one of the most celebrated coffee farms in
Guatemala and continues to be a leader in national tasting competitions, placing in the finals of Cup of Excellence fifteen times, amassing seven first place awards! Whenever we take the long journey into the highlands of Huehuetenango to visit El Injerto, we are impressed with the cleanliness, efficiency and beauty of their farm and mill. It is no wonder that their coffee tastes so great and achieves so many awards.

Why We Love This Coffee

Reviewed by Coffee Review in September 2023, this coffee scored an incredible 94 point review!

This lot is made up of a single landrace variety called ET-47 that originated in Ethiopia, before being planted in Costa Rica near Beneficio Herbazu by Toño Barrantes. The variety was then exchanged with Arturo Aguirre, who now cultivates ET-47 at El Injerto. The coffee was processed using the natural, or dry method, where the coffee cherries are left to dry fully intact on the beans. The coffee exhibits the intensely sweet and fruit-forward flavors that natural processed coffees are known for, with an added layer of complexity attributed to the inherent qualities of the ET-47 landrace variety.
The heritage of the Arabica coffee that populates farms throughout the world can be traced back to a small number of trees from Ethiopia, where Arabica is native to and where many Landrace varieties exist. Consequently, the trees cultivated outside of Ethiopia have little genetic diversity relative to Ethiopia coffees. This is one of the reasons why coffees from Ethiopia are considered to be some of the best and most complex in the world.

Good Coffee, Better Planet

The level of quality and consistency the coffee from El Injerto exhibits is nothing short of amazing. Coffee pickers are paid well and provided housing, food, and recreation areas on the farm, encouraging many to return each harvest season. In exchange, El Injerto retains experienced pickers familiar with their high standards and expectations.

Sustainability by the numbers:
The Aguirre family installed a hydroelectric power plant that covers all of the farm’s electricity needs and then some. Surplus electricity is sold to the Guatemalan government.
El Injerto is Rainforest Alliance certified - 65% of the almost 1,800-acre farm is a rainforest preserve.
Coffee parchment leftover from dry milling is used to fuel their mechanical dryers.
Coffee cherries leftover from wet milling is used for compost.
