Welcome to the Los Pirineos coffee farm, which has been in the Baraona family for more than 120 years. Located at the top of the Tecapa Volcano, the Tecapa Chinameca coffee region is well-known throughout El Salvador.
Though perhaps it is Gilberto Baraona who is the true star of this region, as he is the 8-times winner of the Cup of Excellence in El Salvador. Gilberto’s dedication is truly uncompromising, as he has the largest coffee seed bank in private hands in El Salvador.
Constantly he tests and explores new options to create a unique cup character. His obsession with quality also means he pays well above the legal minimum wages to all his staff. He requires far more precision and attention to detail than the average coffee farmer. Therefore he must invest time and money in the people who manage the processing.
As a result, we are proud to be offering this great rich and chocolatey coffee from the Los Pirineos farm.
