A century of heritage.

El Ingenio was established in 1875 by Mr. Juan Urrutia, with the first trees planted in high-altitude volcanic soil, producing an initial crop of 27 bags.

Over the years, the farm expanded and enhanced its quality, leading to its current management by sixth-generation Enrique, Rene, and their father Gustavo providing advisory support. The farm has placed 7 times over the years for Cup of Excellence.

Our selected lot reveals a blueberry sweetness with mild acidity and a smooth texture.

The Producer

Urrutias Estate coffees are 100% shade-grown, with native trees planted annually to prevent erosion. The farm features izote and copalchi trees as natural wind barriers and is a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, Rainforest Alliance certified.

It hosts 24 mammal species, 259 insect species, and over 120 migratory bird species within its 100 manzanas (170 acres) of natural forest, comprising 20-30% of the farm.

The San Antonio wet mill, named after a nearby river, uses various depulpers calibrated for ripe cherries, ensuring only the best are processed. This coffee underwent a normal natural process on El Ingenio.

    Ripe cherries are dried whole commonly on patio’s, drying beds or even the bare earth allowing the bean to ferment naturally encased by its fruit.

    The cherries are turned regularly to reduce the risk of defects and ensure even drying.

    Once the cherries resemble raisins and the target parameters are met the coffee is hulled and sorted in the dry mill.
