FEATURED FARMER

 

Elkin Guzman is the leading pioneer in the world of coffee producers.

The farm, El Mirador, has been in Elkin’s family for six years now. Hailing from Pitalito, this extremely intelligent young farmer is using new technologies in amazing ways to improve his techniques in terms of cultivation, harvest, and process. The scrutiny and attention to detail that Elkin maintains are undoubtably paying off as he is now producing some of the most consistently impressive coffees we have ever seen come out of Colombia.

Elkin realized early on this year that the maturity of the cherries were extremely good. After harvesting, this particular coffee was run through water tanks to remove floaters and impure cherries. Then, it was hand sorted and put through a unique drying process in order to avoid high temperatures and flavor stressors.
