This coffee farm in Quellouno is about 1800 MASL. It was difficult to adapt to the altitude this early in the morning. Some got altitude sickness ‘Soroche’. This is a common experience from rapid transitions from low to high altitude without taking time to acclimate. We started chewing coca leaves to help us. It works! My friend Raul from Kaffee 3 Granos couldn’t handle it even though he lives in a nearby town Quillabamba.
The coffee farm is surrounded by other trees such as bananas, pears and many more typical fruit plants from the region. We got the chance to walk to other coffee farms located in the region. I will post more pictures about this experience very soon.
Quellouno is a small town located in the Cusco region of Peru, known for its beautiful landscapes and vibrant culture. The town is also home to some of the most impressive coffee farms in the region. As a coffee enthusiast, I was excited to explore the area and learn more about the coffee production process.
As I visited the coffee farms in Quellouno, I was struck by the dedication of the farmers and their commitment to producing high-quality coffee. They took great care in selecting the best beans, using sustainable farming practices, and carefully roasting the beans to perfection. The result was some of the most delicious coffee I’ve ever tasted.
One of the things that really stood out to me was the strong sense of community among the farmers. They worked together to share resources, knowledge, and support each other in their efforts to produce exceptional coffee. This sense of collaboration and teamwork was truly inspiring and made me appreciate the coffee even more.
Overall, my experience in Quellouno’s coffee farms was a wonderful one. The combination of stunning landscapes, delicious coffee, and warm hospitality made it a destination I would recommend to any coffee lover looking for an authentic and unforgettable experience.
