About this coffee :
Finca El Injerto was founded in 1874 by Jesus Aguirre Panama. At first, our estate focused on crops like corn, beans, tobacco and sugar cane. It wasn’t until the year 1900 when coffee was begun to be grown and the estate name was changed to “El Injerto” after a zapote-like fruit that is found in the region.
More than 100 years and three generations after being founded, El Injerto has 245 hectares of coffee plantations: 70% bourbon variety and the remaining 30% distributed in coffee varieties like Catuai, Maragogype, Pacamara, Tekisic, Mocca and Gesha.
Finca El Injerto is located in La Libertad, Huehuetenango, 339km north of Guatemala City. A primary tropical forest surrounds the coffee plantation found at between 1,500 m. and 2,000 m. above sea level, with an average temperature between 18º and 22º Celsius. The terrain is very diverse and mountainous, which has allowed them to mark off regions with different kinds of crops and ideal features for each type of coffee.
