Single Origin Filter Coffee Description

Los Pirineos Farm is a great example of El Salvadoran coffee culture, where the Baraona family has formulated their rich coffee legacy. Los Pirineos is celebrated not only for its top rankings in the El Salvador Cup Of Excellence but also for its commitment to quality, from the perfect conditions of its processing equipment to the cutting-edge methods it employs, all contributing to the impressive profile of its coffee.

This exceptional SL28 microlot is the fruit of selective handpicking, targeting the darkest red cherries at the peak of ripeness. Every step, from flotation to extended drying on serandas, ensures that each bean maximises the flavour potential of its natural process, developing a depth of complexity that El Salvadorian coffee is well known for.

The farm's distinction extends to its impressive collection of coffee varietals, with over 80 types, including Bourbon and Pacamara, and more recent additions like Harrar and Sudan Rume, nurtured by Diego Baraona's forward-thinking cultivation. The farm's plateau, shaped by the Baraona family, enjoys full days of sunshine and steady winds from the west, creating ideal conditions for drying the coffee and enhancing its distinct flavours.

The El Salvador Los Pirineos features a vibrant, juicy body with a balanced acidity. In the cup, you can expect sweet, fruity flavours of yellow peach, plum and stewed pineapple, with a honey-like mouthfeel that lingers.
