El Salvador Los Pirineos

Grown by Gilberto Baraona, 15 times winner of the El Salvador Cup of Excellence, this is an unusually crisp natural with fresh fruit notes of cherry and strawberry on the nose, balanced with apple, raisin and milk chocolate in the cup. The finish reminds us of a strawberry and cream sweet. 

This coffee is a Pacamara, a hybrid of the Pacas and Maragogype varietals developed by the El Salvadoran Institute for Coffee Research. Pacamaras are renowned for producing large beans and exceptional cup qualities when grown with the right care and attention. Gilberto draws out this potential by meticulously controlling the picking, cherry separation and drying processes, placing the drying area between two hills with a prevailing wind to keep temperatures more stable.
