EL Limonar farm is located in the mountains of Huehuetenango. The land was acquired by Rogelio Aguirre Gálvez in 1955 and he named the farm El Injerto. Today the farm is run by the third generation of the Aguirre family. Rogelio Junior was raised on the farm and taught how to take care of it and produce exceptional coffee. Bailies lot is called ‘El Comedor’ and it’s a Bourbon variety from the highest point of the farm. The name El Comedor, meaning the diner, comes from Rogelio’s childhood when his teacher would take him on educational walks through the farm. They would start around 5am and after reaching the top of the farm, they would have breakfast there on the same spot which has the best view and produces the best coffee. This lot won them 7th place in Cup of Excellence (CoE) 2013 and 12th place in national winners this year.
You know an apple pie that’s sweet but not too sweet… with enough tartness from the apples combined with the buttery crumbly crusty pastry. Delicious. Perfect on a cold October day and just the right amount of comfort as winter approaches.
That’s this coffee.
I didn’t taste any pineapple… ha. I felt cheated for a moment but damn. pineapple is for summer… how about that apple pie again!
You can pick up some of this coffee from Bailies here. You totally should.
