My new friends Guillermo and Cory, who I met on my first day in Antigua, have introduced me to the most exquisite coffee. Guillermo’s friend owns the El Injerto coffee plantation in the Huehuetenango region of Guatemala, and their coffee is a Cup of Excellence first place award winner. After tasting it, I can see why. The mouthfeel of this coffee is extraordinarily rich, with flavours of chocolate and possibly plum (?) jumping out at me when I savoured my first sip of this smooth, aromatic coffee. My palate is nowhere near refined enough to spot subtler flavours but I know what I like and I like this. I am now the proud owner of two bags of this delicious and hard-to-come-by coffee which will keep me amped for weeks to come. Thanks guys!

About ailsapm

Hi there! I’m Ailsa Prideaux-Mooney. I’ve lived in many places, and travelled to many more. I had a lot of fun getting there and being there, wherever there happened to be at the time. I climbed a castle wall in Czesky Krumlov, abseiled down cliffs to go caving in the west of Ireland, slept on the beach in Paros, got chased by a swarm of bees in Vourvourou (ok that wasn’t fun, but it was exciting), learned flower arranging in Tokyo, found myself in the middle of a riot in Seoul, learned to snowboard in Salzburg, got lost in a labyrinth in Budapest and had my ice cream stolen by a gull in Cornwall. And I’m just getting started. If you’ve enjoyed what you’ve read so far, I’d love you to follow my travelogue - - and remember, anyone who tries to tell you it’s a small world hasn’t tried to see it all.

      I just heard that Stumptown Coffee is the only place outside of Guatemala that sells El Injerto coffee – and they’re right here in Seattle – stocking up this week, yaay!
