The Los Pirineos Coffee farm has been in the Baraona Family for more than 120 years, and current head of the family 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 Chinameca Coffee Region and has been the experimental ground for several new varietal projects, such as the Central America F1 variety. 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.

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.
