About these Beans
Elkin is one of our favourite producers. We have been working together since 2016 and have had coffee from his main farm El Maguey every season. The effort that Elkin puts in and constant improvements he makes are phenomenal. He is truly an inspiration.
Early in 2019 we worked with Caravela and Elkin to invest in a new depulper for his washing station. A no strings attached gesture to support a star producer and strengthen our relationship. Since then Elkin has expanded his operation to neighbouring farms and greatly expanding his coffee production.
He and his family produce some of the cleanest, fruitiest and flavourful coffee in the region. We wanted to release this lot under his original farm name, to celebrate his beginnings and diversify the offerings from him.
