Los Pirineos is a very well known farm in the specialty coffee industry, as is it’s owner, Gilberto Baraona. He has built a reputation, well founded, on producing very high quality lots of bourbon and rare varietals paired with experimental processing methods. The farm has been in Gilberto’s family since 1880 and has one of the most modern specialty wet mills in the country. The farm and mill have 50 full-time employees and they take on a further 75 during the peak of the harvest. Gilberto’s obsession with quality means he pays well above the legal minimum wages to all his staff. He requires far more precision and attention to detail than the average coffee farm and so he has invested time and money in the people who manage the processing.
