El Mirador is a 32-hectare farm located near the town of Pitalito in Huila. Elkin Guzman's family has a history of over 70 years in the coffee business. 12 of which were dedicated to researching post-harvest processing techniques. 30 hectares of the farm are dedicated to growing exotic coffee varieties like Catiope, Mokka, Tabi, Geisha, as well as Orange, Striped and Pink Bourbon. The remaining hectares of land are used to grown a Caturra variety for processing experiments. During harvest, a process of meticulous selection of ripe cherries allows only the sweetest fruits to be processed. Elkin's innovative approaches to fermentation and immaculate attention to detail have made this farm a benchmark in the industry in terms of quality. Elkin's eagerness to learn and passion for coffee is what makes this farm one of the most exciting in Colombia.
