El Mikai is located in Nariño, San Juan de Pasto. Juan Carlos Hernandez Gaviria grows Castilo, Castillo Tambo, and Caturra varieties on this beautiful two-hectare farm. Cherries are carefully handpicked at its peak maturity to accentuate the cleanliness of the coffee. Juan Carlos and his son hand sort the coffees a second time before the coffee is processed.
After the fruit is removed from the pits, the coffee ferments in a porcelain tank before being washed and laid out on a cement patio to dry.
This is a classic coffee. With nothing too adventurous, you'll love this as your day to day drink. You can expect exciting notes of caramel and soft florals.
