Located in the village of El Portal in Huila, Colombia, El Mirador is a 31-hectare farm planted with several varieties. Elkin Guzman, the owner of El Mirador, has been surrounded by coffee since he was born. His family has always been involved in coffee cultivation, trading, or retail. Collectively, his family has celebrated over 70 years in coffee now, with 12 years of research devoted to post-harvest processing techniques. All of this research and experience has brought Elkin to utilize multiple processing techniques depending on the individual lot of coffee, including Coffee Maceration, Lactic and Acetic Natural processes, and Natural Hydro Honey. Harvest and post-harvest procedures are highly standardized for consistency and quality. First, the sugar content of the coffee cherries is measured in degrees Brix, followed by density and volumetric separation. Finally, the decision is made on which processing method is best suited to bring each lot to its fullest potential. 


El Mirador's team employs a unique processing technique they've dubbed "Yellow Fruits Nectar." It commences with assessing the sugar levels in cherries to ensure optimal ripeness, creating an ideal environment for microorganisms. A starter culture of lactobacillus and saccharomyces is nurtured for over a week with a blend of sugar, molasses, and the nectar of yellow fruits such as pineapple, mango, and passion fruit.  Following fermentation, cherries undergo washing and pulping before being carefully sun-dried.
