About this coffee :

In Usulutan, on top of the Tepeca volcano, you can find Los Pirineos owned by the producer Gilberto Baraona. It’s located on a volcanic mountain range surrounded by the cities of Berlin, Santiago de Maria and Joy. The cultivation of coffee at the farm was started in 1890 and according to family accounts, the original seeds of the property, and the mother plants were imported from Antigua Guatemala.

La Cumbre is one of the defined blocks at the Los Pirineos farm, and it is one of the blocks at the highest part of the farm at 1485 masl. This lot is made up of the Bourbon cultivar, and is a washed coffee. The farmer, Gilberto, is growing different cultivars on different parts of the farm. He is doing so strategically to make the most of the varying conditions across the farm.

This is a very drinkable, accessible coffee with great sweetness and delicate character. Super clean with peach & plum fruity sweetness, finish with hints of almond notes. Perfect to brew on both filter and espresso, we like to brew this on V60 for crystal clean cup.
