THE COFFEE

This single origin coffee, is grown and processed at Los Pirineous, of the Tecapa Chimaneca, Usulutan region. Los Pirineous is situated upon the Tecapa Volcano range in El Salvador. Surrounded by a stunning picturesque landcape. This is a red bourbon varietal, which grows well in these optimal conditions, of 1300 - 1600 m.a.s.l altitude, the beans have been processed using a 'supernatural' method, to boost fruity, sweet flavours. 

THE FARM

Los Pirinous is located between the towns of Berlin and Santiago de Maria in El Salvador, where the Baraona family has been producing coffee for over 130 years. Their farm boasts one of the largest collections of coffee varietals, which contributes to the unique and exceptional quality of their coffee. Los Pirinous has achieved numerous accolades, including 17 Cup of Excellence awards. The farm is widely respected by exporters, buyers, and cuppers, and is renowned for producing some of the highest quality coffees in El Salvador. Los Pirineos features a man-made plateau that overlooks the Tecapa volcano. Extensive drying beds stretch across the plateau, allowing for a variety of processed coffees to be dried. The plateau ensures that the beans get a full day's worth of sunlight, and the westerly winds provide even and consistent drying.

THE PRODUCER

This coffee is produced by Diego Barona, the son of the late Gilberto Barona. Gilberto, along with his family, has made tremendous contributions to the coffee industry. Their hard work, dedication, and commitment to quality and sustainability have helped to promote and improve the livelihoods of many coffee producers in El Salvador. Diego together with his sister Fabiola, continues to add to his fathers legacy.

THE PROCESS

This coffee is a 'supernatural' processed coffee. Supernatural is the bespoke term given by supplier project origin to describe the method used when processing this coffee. Supernatural processing is used to boost flavour, sweetness and body characteristics. This process is often a combination of manipulating the fermentation and drying stages of the coffee. The supernatural coffees are dried as whole cherries  where they absorb red, orange and yellow fruit flavours. The drying process is long and slow, to further develop sweetness. This results in fruit-forward, juicy coffees. 

WHY WE LIKE IT

Pony Coffee Co has chosen this single origin coffee for its sweet fruitiness. This CM process has delivered a coffee that is rounded and juicy, without heavy 'funky' flavours. We are enjoying it as a filter coffee for its ease of drinking and full flavoured profile, and as espresso for its sweet finish and fruity punch.
