Our origins

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.

Location

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 us to mark off regions with different kinds of crops and ideal features for each type of coffee.

Tradition

Finca El Injerto is actually managed by the third and fourth generation of the Aguirre family, who have completely focused the estate’s line of business towards the production, processing and marketing of high quality coffee both locally and internationally.

The current management’s tenacity, energy, vision and passion for hard work and (of course) coffee, has allowed El Injerto to be positioned worldwide as a synonym for quality, efficiency and sustainability. Our family tradition and commitment to excellence has led us to constantly seek for the best quality controls, production processes, and to prioritize environmental care and the quality of life of all our workers.
