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. In the coming years, we look forward to seeing how these new coffee varieties naturalize on the farm.

Why We Love This Coffee

We are happy to present another fine coffee from Finca Los Pirineos, a testament to the long-lasting partnership with the Baraona family that started over a decade ago. This black-honey processed Pacamara variety lot is the first of three coffees that we will be featuring from Finca Los Pirineos this year. After harvesting and pulping, trace amounts of fruit were left clinging to the beans, classifying this lot as a black-honey processed coffee, so named for its sticky, honey-like appearance. Honey processed coffees from Central America are often given a color classification to help differentiate them determined by the amount of fruit left on the beans – the darker the color, the more fruit there is clinging to the beans during drying.

Pacamara is a cultivar that is a cross between the Typica derived Maragogype variety, which produces very large beans, and Pacas, a compact-growing selection of the heirloom variety Bourbon. As a result of this parentage, Pacamara plants are small in stature, but produce enormous beans known for their high cup quality and being notoriously challenging to roast.
