El Mirador is our longest standing relationship in southern Huila, Colombia. It is co-owned and operated by Jose Jadir Losada and NEAT owner, Kyle Bellinger. It is a 20 hectare farm in the municipality of Suaza and is at 1450-1600 masl. There, Jose and Kyle are cultivating a number of varieties of coffee, the majority of which is Castillo. They also have tomatoes, corn, some plantains and papaya as well as honey bees.
This lot is 100% Castillo and was dry-fermented, then washed and dried for around 25 days on raised beds under shade. Each lot was confirmed to be between 10 and 10.5% moisture content and below .58 aW which means these lots were well-processed and should stay fresh for many months!
