From Avenue Coffee:
Notes of butterscotch and amaretto in this super sweet coffee.
Los Pirineos Coffee farm has been in the Baraona family for more than 120 years, since 1880. Gilberto Baraona is an 8 times winner of Cup of Excellence in El Salvador. The farm is located at the top of the Tecapa Volcano, in the Tecapa Chinemaca Coffee Region. The farm has been the experimental ground for several new projects, such as the Central American F1 variety.
Currently Los Pirineos is starting to grow more than 10 new varietals that started producing 2017. The farm and mill have 50 full time employees taking on a further 75 during the peak of the harvest. Gilberto’s obsession with quality 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 farm and so must invest time and money in the people who manage the processing. As a result of the training and support he offers, even his temporary staff are consistent from year to year.
Gilberto’s dedication to quality is uncompromising. He has the largest coffee seed bank in private hands in El Salvador and is constantly testing and exploring new options for unique cup character.
