[Single] El Salvador Los Pirineos Washed Pacamara lot 26 (LAST BATCH, 06/12)
El Salvador Los Pirineos Pacamara
Located atop the Tecapa volcano mountain range between the towns of Berlin and Santiago de Maria, Los Pirineos is named for its similarity to the Pyrenees mountain range that separates France and Spain. The farm is Rainforest Alliance certified, the first farm in El Salvador to obtain this cerfication. It has been long recognised by exporters, buyers and naonal and international cuppers as producing some of the highest quality coffees in El Salvador. Coffee has been produced at Los Pirineos by the Baraona family for 130 years, with the original plants and shade trees imported from Antigua, Guatemala. The farm has the largest private seed bank collection in El Salvador, with seeds and plants from more than 80 varietals. Currently, the main varietals grown are Typica, Bourbon, Pacas and Pacamara. Los Pirineos has achieved great success at numerous auction programs and competitions. Coffee from the farm has been used for a number of coffee competitions across the world, and has also placed numerous times at the Cup of Excellence (CoE) auction, including 2nd place in 2019. The entire process from nursery to milling is undertaken at the farm. During the harvest, extensive drying beds are spread across a man-made plateau overlooking the Tecapa volcano. The constant westerly wind ensures even and consistent drying, and the location atop the volcano means the coffee gets 100% of the sunlight of the day. The team at Los Pirineos take great care to maintain clean equipment, ensuring quality processing from beginning to end. All milling is done on site, and mechanical de-mucilage techniques and UV-protected drying facilities ensure consistent processing and storage of their coffees. Since 2017, we have worked with Los Pirineos to implement a number of experimental processing techniques, including carbonic maceration (CM) processing.
We have been using Los Pirineos' pacamara for years as they are consistent in producing the top-notch quality coffees. Particularly, pacamara is one of the most delicate coffees. Once quality pacamara is made, then, this would be very elegant, complex, floral and sweet. Los Pirineos is surely one of the best farms in the world for pacamara cultivation.
