Red Pacamara Pandora "Reserva del Comendador" is one of the most notable coffees from the El Injerto farm in Huehuetenango in western Guatemala. The Red designation is for their near obsessive dedication to fully ripe coffee cherries. We have been cupping coffee from El Injerto for many years and in most years we try to acquire one of the varietals they produce. This year, we must say, the coffees they offered were really exceptional. Arguably one of the best coffee farms in the world. This coffee has an umami character of broth and miso. The price is high but it is commensurate of the quality. There are virtually no national coffee awards in Guatemala that El Injerto has not won.
