We’re excited to be roasting a gorgeous coffee from one of the top farms in El Salvador: Los Pirineos. The varietal is an interesting one; it’s called Pacamara, which is a hybrid developed in El Salvador and renowned for its complex aromas, creamy mouthfeel, and very large bean size. 

We’ve previously roasted and loved two other lots from this farm, which has placed in the Cup of Excellence in El Salvador an astonishing 15 times. This lot is no exception. The clarity of the flavours and the overall sweetness jumped off the cupping table — there was no doubt that we needed to buy this coffee. 

The Los Pirineos farm has been in the Baraona Family since 1880. According to the importers of this coffee, Falcon Coffees, Gilberto Baraona’s dedication to quality is uncompromising. He pays well above the legal minimum wage to his 50 full-time and 75 seasonal staff, investing in training and support so that even his temporary workers are often consistent year-on-year.

Los Pirineos is also an important farm in the wider specialty coffee industry in El Salvador, holding the largest privately-owned seed bank in the country. Baraona works with the nonprofit World Coffee Research as a verified distributor of three varietals, including this one, and the farm has been involved in experiments for several new varietal projects, such as the Central America F1 variety.
