The farm includes a broad collection of varieties such as Catiope, Mokka, Gesha, Bourbon, Caturra, and Tabi, which is a variety developed and released in 2020 in Colombia by Cenicafe by crossing the varietals; Bourbon, Typica, and the Timor Hybrid.

In the world of differentiated coffees, Elkin and his team have been experimenting and evaluating variables that help improve the quality of the coffees they handle to offer an excellent drink for coffee consumers worldwide for more than 13 years.
The area of the farm is 31 hectares, with sandy-loam and clay-loam soils with good organic matter conditions that aid in the excellent nutrition of their coffee trees. El Mirador is managed under semi-shade systems to optimize temperature regulation and the effect of photosynthesis in coffee plantations.

Caturra Honey

With the Caturra Honey the coffee selected for this process goes through sieves to be selected by hand, removing underripe or overripe cherries, being very selective with the highest quality fruit to start the process.

The selected coffee is deposited in cherry in plastic barrels for a period of 96 to 120 hours aerobically before being pulped and dried for a period of 18 to 25 days.
