Description
 
Finca El Injertal is a family owned and operated estate located near the small town of La Democracia in the mountains of Huehuetenango, in the northwest region of Guatemala.  Founded by Jose Olivio Chavez in the 1930's, the farm has been producing high quality coffees for three generations and is operated today by Jose Olivio's grandson, Jose Alejandro.  The 205 acre farm has 173 acres in coffee productionwhile the remaining 32 acres are kept as a forest preserve where native species of trees provide refuge for wildlife in the area.  The farm contains several natural springs that provide an adequate wate supply during the dry season and are used as a source of energy to run the coffee processing mill.  Certified by the Rainforest Alliance, the coffee plantation is completedly coverd with shade trees, a source of abundant organic matter and an aid in soil erosion control, an important consideration due to the steep hillsides in this area.  All of these circumstances - rich soil, adequate water, and high altitude - result in a unique miroclimate well suited for the production of high quality coffee.  The quality of El Injertal's coffee was first recognized in the first Guatemala Cup of Excellence Auction of Guatemalan coffees and is still recognized today as a farm of distinction.
