Why We Love This Coffee

This year, in addition to wet and natural-processed Red Catuaí variety lots, we are offering a Pacamara variety coffee from Finca El Injerto. We have been purchasing Pacamaras and other auction lots from El Injerto since 2014. Pacamara is a cultivar that is a cross between the Typica derived Maragogype variety, which produces exceptionally large beans, and Pacas, a compact-growing selection of the heirloom variety Bourbon. As a result of this parentage, Pacamara plants are small in stature, but produce enormous beans known for their high cup quality and being notoriously challenging to roast. The coffee is delicate, and we choose to be gentle with our approach to the roast to bring out its complex range of flavors.

Head Roaster Michelle enjoys Pacamaras for their creamy body and with delicate floral notes. She developed a roast profile that highlights lively tropical fruit notes without masking the delicate floral notes that makes this coffee so special.

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.
