Our Review:

This is a coffee with a pedigree.  Finca El Injertal was founded in the 1930s by Jose Olivio Chavez who learned about coffee cultivation during a visit to farms in northern Guatemala. He used coffee plants from those farms and began his own plantation.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.  This water supply, along with the high altitude and rich soil, make for ideal conditions for growing great coffee. 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.

If you have been around specialty coffee long enough, you learn that pedigree is good, but it doesn't gurantee something great in the cup.  In this case, we believe the cup delivers.

This coffee was a delightful surprise.  It had all the same rich, creamy body we expected from a Huehuetenango, but with a much more clean and quick finish.  It is a full bodied, sweet coffee that has distinct cinnamon spice and nutty chocolate throughout.  The acidity is quite low with a honey and slightly melon sweetness. Despite the complexity of flavors there isn't a trace of bitterness to this coffee - very smooth. Distinctly Guatemala Huehuetenango with a twist all its own!
