El Mirador is situated in the municipality of Palestine, within the El Portal village, near the Pompeii Reserve in the Magdalena river valley. The farm covers an area of 32 hectares, the majority of which is dedicated to cultivating exotic coffee varieties like Catiope, Mokka, Tabi, Geisha, Orange, Striped, and Pink Bourbon. Additionally, two hectares are specifically allocated for experimenting with the Caturra variety.

Elkin has implemented standardized workflows and processing procedures on the farm to ensure consistency and to implement quality control at every stage of the production. He pays close attention to detail and employs innovative fermentation methods and a variety of processing techniques, such as maceration, lactic and acetic fermentation, and natural processing.


El Mirador, Strawberry Special (Colombia) - Story


The Catiope variety in this selection is a cross between Colombian Caturra and Ethiopian heirloom varieties "Ca(turra)-(E)tiope." It was developed in the Colombian department of Cauca and obtained by Elkin and Banexport in 2014 on an experimental farm visit. The plant is a low-growing, high-bearing tree with slightly copper-colored leaves. The cherry color is generally full-red with a maturation Brix concentration of 20–22°. The flavor is often sweet.
