It is with great sadness to learn that our very dear friend and coffee producer Gilberto Baraona has just passed away. We are incredibly shocked and devastated from the news as it only seemed like yesterday when we were spending time together at his farm – Los Pirineos. We are eternally grateful to this amazing man, husband and father, who has shared with us so much over the years. Gilberto has supported us and believed in us since almost the beginning of Nylon. He has been a treasured partner and we will always remember this man for his energy, vision, confidence and generosity. He takes care of us when we are in El Salvador, probably a 2nd home to us in Central America. We respect him not only because of what he does in specialty coffee but his no-nonsense approach to getting things done. His love for music and art and his sometimes brash sense of humour, some things we have gotten to know about him over the years. He has been a great role model to coffee producers all around the world for his visionary techniques and processing and his sudden loss will be greatly felt by everyone of us around the world. Our deepest condolences to his family, Gabriela, Fabiola and Diego. To all friends in El Salvador, please stay safe and take care. Rest in peace Gilberto, our dear friend, you will deeply missed ❤️❤️❤️
