This Bird Rock exclusive Direct Trade lot comes from what is considered one of the best coffee farms in the world. El Injerto has been a fixture in the Guatemala Cup of Excellence for the last several years, bringing home many 1st place victories including this year. We have had the honor of working directly with El Injerto for six years now.
El Injerto is Rainforest Alliance Certified (RFA), one of the oldest and most well-established "Eco-Tags" in global commerce. RFA is a non-profit organization that works to conserve biodiversity and to ensure sustainable livelihoods, with some focus being on child labor, forced labor, and discrimination.
Aside from the over 1100 acres used for coffee farming between 1500 and 2200 meters above sea level, the Aguirre family have preserved a large portion of land as a thousand-year-old virgin forest, which gives the farm its special climate and adequate conditions to have clean water that springs directly from the mountains.
This delightful little number is a 100% Red Catuai lot. A lot of natural sweetness and very buttery, with cherries, butterscotch, and milk chocolate.
