The Los Pirineos farm is operated by fifth-generation coffee producer Diego Baraona - he took the helm at the farm in 2020 following his father’s passing and now works to carry on the tradition and legacy of more than 130 years of experience and history. The farm sits 1400 meters above sea level on the slopes of a stand-alone volcano. This unique positioning provides a micro-climate unlike any other with sun-filled days and cool breezes, creating an environment ideal for coffee production.
This lot of Rume Sudan coffee underwent natural carbonic maceration processing. Freshly harvested coffee cherries were placed into aluminium barrels, which were then sealed and infused with CO2 to create the environment for carbonic maceration and fermentation. This process was carried out for 72 hours, and the coffee was then moved to shaded drying beds where it was dried for 45–50 days.
Diego keeps an eye on environmental and social responsibility as well. All of the water used in the production of coffee comes from collected rainwater. Bees are kept here to produce honey and to contribute to the local ecosystem. Diego employs around 60 people on the farm and works to ensure that the people who harvest the coffee are also working on other projects on the farm year-round. All of the coffee at Los Pirineos is shade-grown under trees planted by Diego’s father Gilberto, which provides quality growing conditions for the coffee and additional habitat space for local fauna.
