Lot EI10-B: Pandora Pacamara "Reserva del Comendador"

This coffee region was planted approximately 30 years ago by Arturo Aguirre Sr. He brought the seeds himself from El Salvador. Interestingly, many years ago, this coffee was not well-received as it had a rare and exotic flavor that buyers did not appreciate at the time.

Aguirre Sr. faced challenges in selling it, sometimes offering it at a discounted price or even having to sell some bourbon alongside the Pacamara to persuade buyers to accept it. Times have certainly changed!
This is the only most awarded coffee of the COE program, winning 7 times 1st place. This champion won't let you down.

Reserva del Comendador is the 2nd picking of this Region and it's the favorite of Aguirre Sr. The region is at the middle of the farm at an altitude of 1840masl.
Process: Peak: Performance Process (P3). We call this to our exhaustive process of hand sorting, separation and selection of the coffee beans throughout the washed and dry mill.

Includes cold extended fermentation, soaking for 24hrs after washing and very slow drying. This enhances the flavors and increases the lifetime of the coffee!

Producer Story:

Jesús Aguirre Panamá was the first owner of this farm, which he acquired during the year 1874. He started planting sugarcane to produce crystallized sugar known as “panela” (brown sugar loaf), corn, beans, and tobacco. Around 1900 he started the planting and production of COFFEE, and called the farm EL INJERTO, as ‘injerto’ is the name of a native fruit from the area.

Today the farm is managed by the third and fourth generation of the Aguirre family, who has worked the farm since 1956, when production was approximately three hundred (300) bags of parchment coffee. Now they work with a great team and with the same mission, to produce specialty coffee; maintaining agricultural practices friendly to the environment and focusing in entrepreneurial social responsibility to achieve a new farm management manner, economically viable for all parties involved.

After all this years they have specialized in producing high quality coffee. To be able to do this they have invested a lot in investigation, technology and education.

Located in the Highlands of Huehuetenango close to the famous Sierra de los Cuchumatanes the farm plantations goes from 1500masl (meters above sea level) all the way to 1920masl where the most delicate and exotic varieties are planted. El Injerto has mineral rich, non-volcanic soil, an average precipitation of 1600mm and temperature of 22ºC resulting in some of the best microclimates to produce Specialty Coffee.

El Injerto transmits with its coffees the most honest expression of its terroir characterized by the climate and soil attributes of location. Respect and learning of the place of origin of our varieties are the premises that direct the processes of our coffees.

The entire plantation is under shade using different tree varieties (Inga spp.; Gravillea robusta and Macadamia integrifolia) and canopies.
