Guatemala Huehuetenango - El Injertal
This variant is currently sold out
Tasting Notes: cherry, milk chocolate, vanilla, plum
This is one of our favorite coffees of the year. Guatemalans are renowned for their high quality and the El Injertal does not disappoint. A highly sweet offering with cherry and milk chocolate in the first sip & hints of vanilla and plum followed by a smooth honey finish. Balanced acidity with a medium body make this the perfect breakfast coffee.
About the Coffee
Finca El Injertal was founded in the 1930’s by Jose Olivio Chavez. The farm sits on over 200 acres of land in the northwestern Guatemalan province of Huehuetenango. It is located near several springs that provide water during the dry season as well as the energy to power the coffee mill. Coffee is produced on 173 acres while 32 acres are a forest preserve where native species of trees are protected to provide refuge for wildlife. Certified by the Rainforest Alliance, the plantation is completely covered with shade trees that are an abundant source of organic matter for fertilization and an aid to prevent soil erosion. Today Finca El Injertal is run by Jose Olivio’s grandson, Jose Alejandro Solis Chavez, and has been producing high quality coffee for three generations.
