Origin Story

Diego Baranoa

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 of coffee on the farm started in 1890, but whatever the exact date, the farm has been owned by the Baraona family for well over a century.

Although specializing in heirloom variety Bourbon, an additional 94 varieties of coffee are maturing in a test nursery next to the mill. Initial results of these experimental plots are beginning to come in, with the goal of identifying the best varieties for planting elsewhere on the farm. This Ethiopia landrace variety (Konka), simply meaning it’s a previously unknown heirloom variety from Ethiopia, is one such coffee. Landrace plants are grown from seeds that have not been systematically selected or hybridized by plant breeders.
