El Salvador Los Pirineos Bourbon

Profile

We are happy to announce another special offering from Finca Los Pirineos. Our long partnership with farm owner Gilberto Baraona yielded this Bourbon variety coffee which combines two processing methods – washed and natural. Although of the same botanical variety, the two methods of fruit removal and drying result in substantially different flavors. The washed coffee is rich and nuanced with flavors of citrus and chocolate while the natural lot is more intensely fruity with notes of brandy, ripe blueberry and strawberry. Together the flavors are harmonized in the cup, resulting in a great deal of sweetness and complexity.

Named in honor of the Pyrenees, the mountain range that serves as a natural border between Spain and France, Finca Los Pirineos is the mountainous divide between the coffee towns of Santiago de María and Berlín, located in central El Salvador on the slopes of Tecapa Volcano. By some accounts, cultivation on the coffee farm started in 1890, but whatever the exact date, the farm has been owned by producer Gilberto Baraona’s family for well over a century. Although specializing in heirloom variety Bourbon, over 80% of the farm’s production, we were delighted to see approximately fifty varieties of coffee growing in a test nursery next to the mill when visiting last year. We look forward to the results of this experimentation in the years to come.
