The Story

This year we have expanded the number of offerings from El Injerto. In addition to the wet and natural-processed Red Catuaí variety lots, we also have this very special Pacamara coffee. Pacamara is a cultivar that is a cross between the Typica derived Maragogype variety, which produces very 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 in order to bring out its delicate yet complex range of flavors.  El Injerto 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!  The farm was founded by Jesús Aguirre Panamá in 1874, with the first coffee planted around 1900. Today El Injerto is managed by the third and fourth generations of the Aguirre family. The property is planted with about 620 acres of coffee, with another 1,160 acres of rain forest preserve adjoining the farm.
