Found in the Usulután department of El Salvador, Los Pirineos farm
is operated by fifth-generation coffee producer Diego Baraona.
Diego took the helm at the farm in 2020 following his father’s passing
and now works to carry on the tradition and legacy of not
only his father Gilberto, but the more than 130 years of experience,
history, and knowledge that his family has in coffee cultivation.
The farm sits 1400 meters above sea level on the slopes of a stand-alone volcano.
This unique positioning provides a microclimate unlike any other
with sun-filled days and cool breezes, creating an environment ideal
for coffee production, processing, and drying.
This climate is capitalized on especially well in the drying area
of the farm where raised drying beds are positioned between two peaks,
creating a wind tunnel through which a breeze constantly flows.
The beds are exposed to the sun for twelve hours per day while the temperature
is regulated by the persistent wind, creating an ideal environment
for producing Honey and Natural coffees.
While quality is certainly important at Los Pirineos, Diego keeps an eye
toward environmental and social responsibility as well.
All of the water used in production and processing of the coffee
comes from collected rainwater. Bees are also kept here, both to produce honey
and to contribute to the local ecosystem in a variety of ways.
