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

We are happy to be continuing our partnership with El Injerto and the Aguirre family. We started by offering an assortment of coffees, purchased primarily through El Injerto’s annual auction.

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.
