    Farm Information

    El Mirador is a 32-hectare farm with 30 hectares of coffee. The farm includes a broad collection of varieties like Catiope, Mokka, Tabi, and Gesha.

    Colombia Finca El Mirador

    Catiope is a variety that Elkin came across during a visit to an experimental station operated by Cenicafé in Timbio, Cauca, Colombia. It’s a hybrid of Caturra with Lineas Etiopes. 

     Look for tropical fruits, berry jam sweetness and long aftertaste of molasses and muscovado sugar.

    Special Washed Processing —— "Pink Champagne"

    Harvest and post-harvest procedures at the farm are highly standardized for consistency and quality. The processing methods used by Elkin Guzman combine different approaches to fermentation and drying techniques to complement each coffee’s characteristics.

    In the case of this lot of Catiope coffee, the team at El Mirador chose a special Washed processing method that they call Pink Champagne.

    The Anaerobic Washed process

    The Anaerobic Washed process begins with selecting only the ripe cherries. The coffee is first sorted by floating the cherries in water to remove defects, which is followed by hand sorting to remove dark and overripe fruit. The cherries are then depulped and macerated and fermented in air-tight plastic tanks for 140 hours and pH is measured regularly. After being fermented, the coffee is dried for 25–30 days before being milled and prepped for export.
