    Profile

    Profile

    A fantastic single estate from Celistino Rodrigues in Peru.

    Clean, balanced and moreish, El Mirador is the perfect filter all day, every day - though far from "everyday" in flavour, with delicious notes of plum, butterscotch and almond.

    Its sweetness is lingering, its body is milky and its acidity is clean and complex, each element perfectly harmonised. We especially enjoyed the soft caramel aftertaste that vividly reminds us of a Werther's Original. A really pleasant coffee.

    The Producers

    The Producers

    El Mirador is the farm of smallholder producer Celestino Rodrigues, located in El Diamante at the northern end of the Peruvian Andes.

    Celistino is part of Origin Coffee Lab, an organisation that works with small family-run farms and communal lots. Smallholder farms are very common in Peru, often belonging to producers' organisations such as this - whose role is to supply technical help, training, loans, community development and more.

    El Mirador is a washed coffee. It is dried and processed at the farm, rather than transport it long distances to larger mills. It is fermented in bags for up to 30 hours before being washed, rinsed and sundried next to the family home for up to 20 days.

    • Wholesale

      We are always looking to work with likeminded businesses to serve our coffee.

      If you're interested in serving this locally roasted Edinburgh coffee as your main offering, a guest appearance or as bags of retail, get in touch with us on roastery@machina-coffee.co.uk or call (0131) 656 9565.

       

    • Roasting Schedule

      Your coffee will be roasted within 1-16 days of purchase, with a shelf life of 6 weeks (optimum serving point at 12-36 days old). We recommend letting this coffee rest for at least 12 days before using, in order to release excess gas which can impact the flavour of your cup.

      If you would like your coffee fresh, please leave a note with your order and we will do our best to accommodate.
