Gilberto Baraona

A Visionary

Gilberto was an innovative leader in coffee globally. He constantly pushed the boundaries of what was possible with coffee, with quality at the forefront. We have been proud to work with Gilberto since 2017 and we will continue to get fresh crops from the family's farm in Usulután.

Sadly, Gilberto passed away in 2020. He will be missed by us and everyone who knew him in the coffee community, and beyond.

Pacamara Varietal

Gilberto’s work with the Pacamara varietal is sought-after the world over, and for good reason. For a naturally processed coffee, it is incredibly clean and well processed, with aromatic orange top notes and a creamy, moreish body.

The Baraona family are experts in cultivating and propagating this variety and they have the only WCR certified nursery to sell the seeds.

When can I buy this coffee?

Los Pirineos coffees are harvested between December & April, meaning after processing, milling, drying, packing and shipping, we tend to receive our greens between December and January and will hold them for around three months. If you're not here then, check out our current line up.
