Located atop the Tecapa volcano mountain range between the towns of Berlin and Santiago de Maria, Los Pirineos is named for its similarity to the Pyrenees mountain range that separates France and Spain, and beholds the most spectacular views in all directions. Coffee has been produced at this farm by the Baraona family for over 130 years, with the original plants and shade trees imported from Antigua, Guatemala. The farm has the largest private seed bank collection in El Salvador, with seeds and plants from more than 80 varietals. Currently, the main varietals of coffee grown are bourbon, typica, pacas and pacamara. In this most recent harvest, Diego Baraona was able to harvest and process additional varietals that he and Gilberto planted five years ago, including SL 28, harrar and sudan rume.
