In this episode, I am joined by Diego Baraona on his farm Los Pirineos in El Salvador.
I have been working with the Baraona family for many years. In 2020 our dear friend, pioneering coffee producer Gilberto Baraona sadly passed away. During his time leading Los Pirineos, Gilberto transformed his farm from being an average farm to becoming one of the most spectacular farms in Central-America. Following his passing, Gilberto’s son Diego took over the running of the farm and today is continuing his fathers legacy.
In this wide-ranging conversation with Diego, we discuss our long-standing relationship, the different processes that Diego and his team manage on the farm, the challenges and opportunities of running a coffee farm in 2023 and more.
You can learn more about the Los Pirineos farm, on our website here.
